Dr. Sherman also serves as the Medical Director of Sustainability for Yale-New Haven Health System. Dr. Sherman is an internationally recognized researcher in the emerging field of sustainability in clinical care. Her research interest is in life cycle assessment (LCA) of environmental emissions, human health impacts and economic impacts of drugs, devices, clinical care pathways, and health systems. Her work seeks to establish sustainability metrics, paired with health outcomes and costs, to help guide clinical decision-making, professional behaviors, and organizational management toward more ecologically sustainable practices to improve the quality, safety and value of clinical care and to protect public health. Dr. Sherman routinely collaborates with environmental engineers, epidemiologists, toxicologists, health economists, health administrators, health professionals, and sustainability professionals. Dr. Sherman is a member of the Lancet Countdown on Health and Climate Change and was contributing analyst for the UK National Health Service Net Zero Initiative and serves on the National Academy of Medicine Action Collaborative for Decarbonization of the U.S. Health Sector.

Please join for an interactive and thought-provoking session on climate risk, climate solutions, and their impact on business. Using the system dynamics computer model En-ROADS, will explore how the right investments, actions and policies can have a profoundly positive impact on climate change, limit transition risks, and create a thriving global economy. Developed by Climate Interactive and the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative, En-ROADS is a system dynamics computer model carefully grounded in the best available science. which allows users to explore the impact of wide-ranging policies—for example, electrifying transport, clean tech, and better food systems — on hundreds of factors like natural gas and electricity prices, global crop yield, air quality, and sea level rise. Note there is a fee for this event.

Ophthalmic practice and surgeries generate a staggering amount of waste on a daily basis, including packaging along with single-use disposable surgical devices, medical supplies and unused topical eye drops and ointments. Ocular surgery also has a significant climate footprint, especially cataract surgery, a surgery performed millions of times annually in the United States and globally. Perioperative health professionals are concerned about the magnitude of OR waste. A survey of more than 1,300 cataract surgeons and nurses found that 93% believed that OR waste is excessive and should be reduced, 79% preferred reusable over disposable instruments, 90% were concerned about climate change, and 87% wanted medical societies to advocate for reducing the surgical carbon footprint. Recognizing the significant climate footprint of ocular care and surgery, along with the ways that climate change adversely impacts eye health, ophthalmologists are successfully advocating for climate-smart policies in their institutions, their industry, and beyond. Come to this session and be inspired by ophthalmologists who are making a difference in the fight against climate change and leading the sustainable surgery movement.

Scope 3 emissions represent the largest and hardest to address segment of most corporate carbon footprints. Complex global value chains, inconsistent measurement, and a lack of transparent disclosure pose immense challenges for companies looking to develop a clear understanding of their full climate impact – a necessity for delivering on science-aligned net zero commitments. Increasing stakeholder pressure, including potential regulation, is sharpening corporate focus on Scope 3 emissions and highlighting the need for better data and reporting for Scope 3 emissions. Given the complexity of the challenge, innovative technology stands to play a significant role in helping companies chart a path forward. In this webcast, we will hear from experts on the changing Scope 3 data collection and reporting landscape, innovative approaches to Scope 3 management and how robust value chain strategies have helped companies make progress on climate goals. Topics will include:
•How companies are currently approaching supplier engagement and data collection
•How companies are leveraging technology and innovation to tackle Scope 3 challenges
•The business benefits of improving Scope 3 emissions reporting and management in the net zero transition
