An educational series and summit

The mission

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) is a critical issue for boards of directors and healthcare leaders across all sectors of our economy. The healthcare industry, the fifth-largest emitter of global carbon dioxide emissions, has a moral and financial imperative to demonstrate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) leadership.

Modern Healthcare Custom Media’s ESG: The New Imperative educational series and Summit will empower C-suite healthcare executives with the knowledge, insights and solutions they need to lead their organizations and communities in support of ESG and meet boardroom, financial and governmental demands.

ESG on the Balance Sheet

Stakeholders’ increased focus on ESG will present immense business opportunities for organizations that position themselves to adapt to these shifting priorities. Health equity and sustainability are two areas in which healthcare organizations would be wise to invest, given their potential to impact the balance sheet. In the coming years, health equity outcome-related data will increasingly impact reimbursements, and policies from the executive branch and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will seek to ensure that healthcare organizations are doing their part to mitigate the climate crisis. Learn how these changes will impact your operations and your disclosure requirements, as well as how you can prepare.
