Care Without Carbon: The Road to Sustainability in US Health Care PART 2
Thursday, June 3, 2021, 10:00 AM until 3:30 PM
PART 2: Lessons from the Greener NHS Initiative: challenges and opportunities on the road to net zero health care. Using the NHS as a case study, this session will provide an overview of how carbon accounting can be performed for a health care system, how mitigation strategies are developed, and what obstacles can be anticipated.
The National Health Service (NHS) England is the world’s largest health care delivery organization, and has the most robust health care carbon accounting effort in the world. In 2020, the Greener NHS Initiative was launched, committing the organization to achieving ‘net zero’ carbon emissions by 2040. This target is set across all emissions in Greenhouse Gas Protocol Scopes 1, 2 and 3 and includes, estates and facilities, transport and travel, medicines, and medical and non-medical supply chains.
