Employing Energy Efficiency to Protect Health and Mitigate the Effects of Climate Change

August 7, 2019 | 11:00am - 12:00pm EDT

Energy efficiency is a cost-effective strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating the health effects of climate change. By saving energy in buildings and making vehicles more fuel efficient, we reduce our need to burn fossil fuels to generate electricity. These reductions in pollution mean big gains for health. Doctors will share their experiences advocating for energy efficiency policies as a strategy to mitigate the health effects of climate change in state legislatures. Experts will also discuss how energy efficiency can play a role in protecting public health by reducing greenhouse gases and other harmful pollutants.
