In light of the challenges related to climate change, political dynamics, and societal imbalances, the significance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives is ever-growing. As a mission-led sector, healthcare regulators, providers and payors have long held the social pillar of ESG central to their core values. However, healthcare organizations have been slow to take action on ESG issues. A global KPMG survey of healthcare CEOs found that ESG was ranked lowest among important organizational key performance indicators.1 Increasingly governments, regulators and the public are looking to the sector to address ESG issues that may include:

  • Reducing energy and water consumption in healthcare facilities
  • Addressing transportation and supply chain carbon footprints
  • Reducing medical waste
  • Ensuring the delivery of safe and quality care
  • Providing equitable access to care
  • Recruiting executive leaders from diverse communities
