Time to reset green: how to develop a Green Plan for your organisation that delivers on carbon, cost and care

In October 2020, the NHS became the world’s first health service to commit to reaching net zero, in response to the health threat of climate change. All trusts are required to develop a green plan, but how do you develop a strategy that reduces carbon emissions to net zero, saves money, and delivers improved staff, patient and public health?

Deputy director of operations for the Greener NHS programme, Paul Chandler, talks to Imperial College London Healthcare NHS Trust and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust about their ambitious new green plans, the challenges and opportunities of developing a strategy to support the delivery of the world’s first net zero health service, and why the time to reset green and raise ambition on climate change action across the system is now.

This session forms part of the Sustainability feature zone, which is supported by Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd.
