Waste, Energy and Sustainability – A Net Zero NHS Virtual Conference






A one day virtual conference taking place on Thursday 21st March 2024

We are proud to announce our next Waste, Energy and Sustainability Conference will be co-chaired with NHS England. The conference theme is ‘A Net Zero NHS’ – linked of course to the  ‘For a Greener NHS’ initiative.

The health and care system in England is responsible for an estimated 4-5% of the country’s carbon footprint so has a major role to play in supporting this. The NHS has therefore committed to reaching Net  Zero as soon as possible, requiring the support of all 1.3 million NHS employees.

The UK was the first major economy in the world to pass a law to end its contribution to climate change. This means that the UK will aim to balance any   emissions generated through emission cutting or removal efforts – so called ‘Net Zero’.

Given the importance of the NHS in our national life, how quickly the NHS can advance to Net Zero will affect how quickly the country as a whole succeeds.

This is a one day conference aimed at NHS  Managers and Leads in Waste Management, Energy and Sustainability.
