    Our promise

    With the growing threat of climate change, systemic inequality and global health disparities, we recognize that following through on our sustainability goals has never been more essential. We want to enable earlier, better, and faster diagnosis and treatment for more people in need, while reducing or eliminating our impact on the environment.

    GE HealthCare’s 2050 net-zero goal, and near-term greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Aligning our GHG reduction goals with climate science demonstrates our prioritization in reducing our environmental footprint to build a more sustainable future for patients, healthcare providers, our colleagues, and our other stakeholders.
