NHS net zero
you can help the nhs reach
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.
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.
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.
