2021 ESG Report Healthy Planet Our Climate Action Strategy Changes to the Earth’s climate, including those that are driven by greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), can have direct and serious effects on our health and well-being. Reduced air quality can lead to more respiratory and cardiovascular disease. An increase of heat waves, storms, floods and wildfires can exacerbate illness and chronic conditions. Shifting climate patterns can boost the spread of allergens and infectious diseases. Poor agricultural conditions can impact food production. These consequences will be felt more heavily in some communities than others, depending on underlying health factors, regional variation and economic resiliency. It’s clear the health of our planet and the health of all people are inextricably linked.
