How can I make a difference?
Climate change is a health emergency.
Contributing around 4% of England’s emissions, the NHS is both a part of the problem and the solution. It must tackle climate change at source if it is to deliver on its core purpose: to improve health and care, now and for future generations.
Across the NHS there is overwhelming support for more sustainable healthcare. Nine in ten staff support the NHS’s net zero ambition and individuals, teams and organisations are already taking action. Including creating their own renewable energy, reducing waste, using sustainable transport, better prescribing and transitioning to lower carbon clinical practices – such as switching to lower carbon anaesthetic gases.
These videos show just a fraction of the initiatives that are already making a difference, and the staff that are committed to delivering a net zero NHS for the benefits of our patients, staff and communities.
