Healthcare ESG preparedness resource guide

As organizations’ ESG efforts come under increased scrutiny, it is important to have a thorough understanding of what data you may be asked to provide and where you should be able to find it. 

Amidst increased focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives, healthcare organizations may be asked to report on a variety of criteria to demonstrate their ESG efforts and sustainability results. This increased scrutiny requires a clear view of how initiatives — both new and existing — may impact their ESG posture.


These are factors that may affect climate change and nature/biodiversity, including a healthcare organization’s direct and indirect carbon emissions, contribution to air and water pollution, energy and water consumption, use of anesthetic gases, use and disposal of single-use items, and construction practices.


These include factors that may affect your people and your communities, including employee health and safety and career progression plans as well as patient satisfaction and mortality rates.


This category includes practices employed by a hospital or health system’s leadership and management, including a healthcare entity’s efforts to ensure that its operations are ethical, transparent, accountable, and aligned with its missions and values.

Our ESG preparedness resource guide is intended to help you streamline the reporting process by highlighting some of the information you will likely be expected to gather and outlining the sources that may help you collect this data.
