Abstract

Global climate change has been identified as the biggest health threat this century (UCL-Lancet Commission 2009). Poverty and related global social problems also call us to address sustainability issues within healthcare. The three principles of sustainable development are economic, social, and environmental and an ideal state will take all three into account. The World Federation of Occupational Therapists’ (WFOT) Position statement on environmental sustainability (2012) recognises the need for occupational therapy professionals to participate in the resolution of these major global issues.
