About the Event

Fincovi are delighted to be a global sponsor of Climate Club and the next event will be livestreamed via the YouTube channel.

The health and climate interface has been a hot topic amongst environmentalists for decades, but Covid-19 has thrown it fully into the spotlight. Questions around the next "big thing" to threaten human health have been coming thick and fast. But did you know that the healthcare sector is responsible for 4% of global emissions - that's more than aviation and shipping - plus a host of other potent gases and waste streams, including the obvious single use plastics.

In the spirit of the CCC, there will be an opportunity for you to get involved. So be sure you bring along any questions about healthcare that you’ve always wanted answered. We'll also be gathering you a reading list of the latest research for those that want to dive a little deeper. To get you started here's a recent feature from Robert at WEF.
