In 2020, the NHS became the world’s first health service to commit to reaching net zero carbon. Following this ambition, NHS organisations have been working to translate national ambition into local action – through the development of green plans.
Climate change poses a significant threat to our health, and reducing harmful carbon emissions will improve health and save lives.
The contribution we make as a Trust is extremely important in the long term.
At Bedfordshire Hospitals, we have a Board approved Green Plan in place and are continuing to strive in making sure we make a difference, with involvement from staff, patients, visitors, partners and the suppliers we work with.
Take a look at number of initiatives we have already implemented as we look to achieve net zero carbon.
