Are You a Healthcare Professional? Join the Healthy Energy Initiative

About this Climate Action

The Healthy Energy Initiative is a global collaboration of health professionals, health organizations, and health researchers engaging in science-based advocacy for a move away from fossil fuel-based power generation—particularly coal—and toward clean, renewable, healthy energy options.

The Climate and Health Alliance is engaged in a series of projects to raise awareness among health professionals and the wider community about the risks to health from current energy policy in Australia, based as it is on fossil fuels, particularly for energy generation and transport.

Current energy systems in Australia are posing serious risks to health and contribute to emissions growth and climate change.

The burning of coal for electricity generation and other fossil fuels for transport poses serious direct risks to human health.

In contrast, renewable energy technologies that harvest natural resources such as wind and solar power provide clean, healthy, safe alternatives to fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas.
