It’s time to take action

The future of a healthy economy is dependent on healthy communities. With climate change being an imminent threat to human health, the trajectory of the economy is directly influenced by understanding and formulating proactive solutions to weather these storms. 

  • Health affects productivity
  • Health affects consumption
  • Health issues are disproportionately felt across communities

One of the main factors jeopardizing human health is climate change

Studies show that climate change could wipe out up to 18% of worldwide gross domestic product (GDP) by 2050 if global temperatures rise by 3.2°C. That’s a staggering statistic.
