NHE365: Decarbonising the NHS through travel and transport

Patients, visitors, workers, and suppliers to the NHS account for roughly 3.5% of all road travel in England, accounting for nearly 14% of the sector’s total emissions, stated in the Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Service report.

Back in May, National Health Executive brought together industry leaders from the health sector on the NHE365 virtual event platform to discuss achieving the NHS net-zero targets.

During our fourth session of the day, we were joined by:

These panellists explored the growth of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure, organisations promoting healthy, active modes of transportation like cycling and walking and how providers and healthcare organisations can work together to help achieve net-zero targets.

After our Travel & Transport panel we were joined by James Bate, Senior Project Manager, South East Greener NHS Programme, NHS England who delivered an exclusive keynote session.

James discussed climate change and air pollution, health impacts, Ella Kissi-Debra and Coroner’s report, examples of best practice, tools and resources available to improve air pollution and working with local authorities across Integrated Care Systems.
