“Bold action is needed to minimize the impact of climate change. At Eaton, we are helping our customers in the healthcare industry and beyond chart a path toward sustainability,” said Harold Jones, chief sustainability officer and executive vice president, Eaton Business System, Eaton. “We’re on pace to meet our ambitious sustainability goals and support collaborative efforts like this worldwide to help ensure a low-carbon future.”
