Our Guest Speaker, Dr Lisa Rasmussen, is a Mercy Health clinician and holder of an Environmental Master’s degree. Lisa’s work in reducing the carbon foot print of Mercy Health has resulted in “Caring for People and Planet, Mercy Health’s Strategic Response to Laudato Si” - see the article on page five of our May newsletter, ‘Helen Haines Meeting on Net Zero Agriculture’ where Lisa reminded the audience that achieving Net Zero will also require us to consider the Scope 3 emissions embodied in the goods and services we purchase.
Lisa has titled her talk, “How might we truly reduce our carbon emissions, leading to a fair and just society. Laudato Si’ and Mercy Health’s approach to reducing its carbon footprint”.
Supper will be served at the conclusion of the evening.
