A Net Zero NHS

A call for evidence

The NHS already has significantly reduced carbon emissions, but through the ‘For a greener NHS’ programme we are accelerating action.

That’s why we are launching a call for evidence, to gather case studies, data, ideas and research, both established and emerging, that enhances our existing knowledge and helps to identify new opportunities for greening the NHS.

We therefore want to hear your ideas on how the NHS can reduce its carbon emissions more quickly. Submissions are welcome from anyone with an interest in healthcare,  carbon reduction or sustainability, whether you are a member of NHS staff, a patient, carer, or expert in a related field.

Members of staff from every field of healthcare can play their part by contributing ideas here. Further information is available by contacting greener.nhs@nhs.net

Many highly skilled and passionate staff are working across the NHS to deliver projects that benefit the environment and improve health.
