What is Planetary Health?

“Our definition of planetary health is the achievement of the highest attainable standard of health, well-being, and equity worldwide through judicious attention to the human systems—political, economic, and social—that shape the future of humanity and the Earth’s natural systems that define the safe environmental limits within which humanity can flourish.”​

Report of The Rockefeller Foundation-Lancet Commission on planetary health, 2015
