Green Plan from Carbon Architecture enables green tech transformation

The Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT) partnered with Carbon Architecture to facilitate the production of their Green Plan. Our consultants have worked closely with the Trust to identify opportunities for carbon reduction, including areas where the use of technology can increase patient care levels, whilst cutting related emissions.

We have been helping multiple Trusts across the UK with their Green Plans, the aim of which is to support the NHS wide ambition of being the first Net Zero national health service. Each trust and integrated care system should now have a Green Plan in place, which sets out a high level strategy to deliver carbon reduction, driving wider sustainability and improving patient care.

Through the implementation of these plans, NHS Trusts will be able to work towards the overall NHS net-zero 2040 goal. Whilst one of the biggest challenges is around the decarbonisation of heat across the NHS estate, which requires significant investment, the NHS supply chain accounts for more than 60% of the organisations total carbon emissions. This is of course a clear priority and focus area for every Green Plan, and Trusts will no longer be sourcing from suppliers that are not aligned to these aims.

The scope of these reports covers:

  • workforce and system leadership
  • sustainable models of care
  • digital transformation
  • travel and transport
  • estates and facilities
  • medicines
  • supply chain and procurement
  • food and nutrition and adaptation
