Lumea is the first surgical centre in Canada to attain carbon neutral status!
Healthcare faces unique challenges in achieving carbon neutrality, such as the essential use of disposable single use items and instruments to prevent infection and ensure your safety. Nonetheless Lumea has a strong foundation of prioritizing patients and the planet.
In collaboration with Climate Partner, Lumea has become a pioneer in healthcare sustainability practices and is now the first surgical centre in Canada to attain carbon neutrality. Climate Partner determined Lumea’s surgical carbon emissions through internationally recognized standards, establishing and executing reduction objectives, and financing climate projects to offset emissions. This year’s offsetting project involves providing households in Maharashtra, India with improved cookstoves. This sustainability initiative will significantly reduce CO2 emissions by addressing deforestation as well as improving indoor smoke exposure levels. You can learn more about this project here.
“Because of our commitment to the climate, we are thrilled to announce that we are the first carbon neutral network of surgical centres in Canada, as recognized and certified by Climate Partner.” – Dr. Paul Sanghera, Co-Founder & Medical Director
Lumea is proud to partner with our patients in changing the world for the better. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Climate Partner and most importantly our patients, for helping us achieve this incredible milestone. Thank you for helping us make our world a better place!
