What is NHS Net Zero?

The NHS has an ambitious plan to be Net Zero by 2045. Hiyos is working together with NHS partners in NW London, the Care Quality Commission, research institutions and patients. It’s running a series of panel discussions on the NHS’s plans regarding the environment, including practical ways you can make a difference. 

Why are we doing this?

The earth is heating up and we need to act now! Not only countries and corporates, but also us as individuals. It’s the biggest environment emergency facing our planet, it certainly affects future generations but actually all of us in the coming years. 


The earth is heating up and we need to act now! Not just countries and corporates, but all of us. Evidently, the environment is the biggest emergency facing our plant and it affects us all and future generations in the coming years. In 1990, the NHS had a bigger carbon footprint than Norway.

Although a lot has been done since then, there’s still a way to go to get to Net Zero by 2045. We have all play our part.    If NHS organisations, staff & patients act now, we can secure the future for generations.

Every year environmental factors cause 13 millions deaths worldwide.

Water scarcity displaces 23 million people. In reality the climate emergency affects the poorest the most. 

So where do we start with the environment?

Surprisingly (or perhaps not), households are responsible for 66% of emissions. The United Nations has therefore produced 10 impactful actions which make the biggest difference.

Likewise, the actions that the NHS needs to take work along similar lines. We therefore need to ensure that we all engage at home AND at work.

Digital Health

A lot has changed with COVID, but what is the environmental impact of digital health?


Embedding the evaluation of the impact of interventions is key. 


What is the NHS Net Zero programme?

We still have time, if we act now. In our webinars, our panel of experts will in the first place unpick the NHS Net Zero plan and subsequently examine things that organisations, staff and patients can do to help achieve this goal. 

In short, a fun interactive programme of webinars. All sessions will be at noon and will last around 30 minutes. Book online where you can see more information for each session. You can meet speakers and indeed other participants and share your experience.

Fun interactive webinars. 30mins during your lunch break!
