Climate Action at Data4Life

Unlocking the full potential of health data - Getting to know Data4Life

Data4Life is a nonprofit digital health organization dedicated to improving global health in three ways: 1) we enable researchers by helping them manage studies and gain new medical insights; 2) we empower individuals and families with digital solutions, so they can improve their own health and quality of life; and 3) we support healthcare providers by simplifying processes and offering open-source software to fit patient needs. Since the environment and health are inextricably linked, Data4Life also plays an active role in fighting climate change.

Human health depends on a healthy planet

At Data4Life, we’re aware there is no easy solution to climate change. This does not stop us, however, from doing what we can. We continue to set ambitious climate goals and incorporate them into our OKRs. We’ve been part of the LFCA since 2019 and have remained climate neutral since then. Between 2019 and 2020, we decreased our carbon emissions from 343,835 to 186,714 kg. We’ve also implemented a company-wide policy banning domestic flights within Germany and offset any international flights. All of our offices and data centers run on green energy.

Do your part, take action and accelerate the transition.

The climate crisis affects all of us and we can all contribute in the fight against it. It’s not enough to point at politicians and businesses and wait for change. It’s on us to increase the pressure and actively push for change. We vote with our daily consumption choices, our political voices and our personal investments. Check out our tips for effective personal climate action and contribute in the fight against the climate crisis.
