Dig­nity Health has sold off in­vest­ments in ther­mal coal com­pa­nies and will no longer in­vest in that in­dus­try.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

It’s one of the bold­est moves to date by a U.S. health sys­tem to align its clin­i­cal and fi­nan­cial in­ter­ests with the need to ad­dress cli­mate change. The pol­icy move by Dig­nity Health, a large San Fran­cis­cobased sys­tem of hos­pi­tals and doc­tors with $12.4 bil­lion in an­nual rev­enue, comes as world lead­ers meet in Paris to ham­mer out a global cli­mate change pact. Dig­nity is one of a hand­ful of U.S. health sys­tems at­tend­ing the United Na­tions cli­mate sum­mit, and is ed­u­cat­ing oth­ers in the in­dus­try on how they can make tan­gi­ble progress to­ward mit­i­gat­ing global warm­ing.
