FPH at the top of Climate and Health Scorecard Initiative 2022-23

The Faculty of Public Health ranked first in the Climate and Health Scorecard Initiative 2022-23 alongside the Royal College of General Practitioners.

This project, led by Eleanor Cooke and Amelia Cussans, two NHS doctors and researchers in the field of climate, nature and health, aims to support health organisations to take the right steps to mitigate the effects of the climate and ecological emergency, whilst enabling health professionals to know what climate action has been taken by their membership organisation.

The scorecard assesses organisational actions on climate in four domains; internal operations, education and training, divestment, and advocacy.

The Faculty’s work on climate and health is led by our Climate and Health Committee and Sustainable Development Special Interest Group, guided by our Climate and Health Strategy 2021-25.

More information on the Faculty's work on climate and health is available on our website, including our joint Climate Change Litigation Report, a cross-sector guide for public health professionals with successful examples of public health and climate change litigation, and recordings of our COP28 Debrief Webinar, and Distinguished Lecture with Dr Maria Neira reflecting on the 28 years of COP and the role of public health in climate action.

The Faculty extends congratulations to the other 19 organisations who took part in this initiative, recognising that collective action is key to achieve a fairer, healthier, and sustainable world and to protect and improve the health of populations in the UK and overseas.

The report of the Faculty’s participation in the Climate and Health Scorecard Initiative, highlighting achievements and next steps, is available online to facilitate cross-organisational learning.
