Sustainability in Healthcare – Thematic Research

Pages: 20 Published: June 29, 2020 Report Code: GDHC-TR-S019

As providers and payers of healthcare look toward a post-COVID-19 recovery, implementing policies and strategies that reinforce sustainability will be vital to securing stable footings in both the short and long term. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) are three critical elements of sustainability that players in the healthcare space will have to consider in order to strengthen their business interests and increase their ability to compete in the future healthcare space. Environmental sustainability is important as issues such as climate change and increasing pollution levels can significantly impact the health of local and regional populations around the world, and will continue to exert cost and infrastructure stresses on global healthcare systems. Rising healthcare costs make it necessary for all serious healthcare players to consider social sustainability in healthcare. Neglected communities, lack of access to affordable and effective healthcare, and the inability to access voices of diverse communities will all lead to inevitable declining population health, and ultimately to an increase in healthcare costs. Last, it is vital that healthcare players address corporate governance issues such as tighter risk management strategies in order to bolster consumer trust, and to seek more inclusive corporate structures to create better buy-ins across all stakeholders. Players that are able to better support the environment, create social trust and value, and embrace transparency and value generation will be more competitive as healthcare costs continue to rise.
