Decarbonising the NHS: A practical guide to achieving net-zero

National Health Executive and E.ON Energy united to hold a unique webinar which aims to educate the healthcare sector on the practical steps that they need to take in order to reach net zero by 2030.

Featuring Pete Waddingham, National Net Zero Lead for the ASHN Network, who chaired the panel discussion. Pete is passionate about sustainability issues and has spent the last four years working on a variety of innovations, including projects that increase efficiency and quality of care.

All NHS trusts should have a green plan in place and be taking steps to reach net zero by 2030, helping prevent illness, reducing pressure on A&Es, and saving tens of thousands of lives, but often it’s hard to know where to start. Back in 2020, the NHS Shared Business Services Authority declared a climate emergency and set out its aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2023.

The health and care system in England contributes 4-5% of the country’s carbon footprint.

Climate Change is recognised as the greatest threat to human life in the 21st century - addressing the issue takes pressure off the healthcare system and ultimately saves lives.
