NHS carbon reduction
NHS energy-efficiency and carbon reduction
The NHS is beginning to deliver improvement to its carbon intensity and energy efficiency. In England Trusts are working towards ambitious 2015 and 2020 targets of 10% and 34% respectively with NHS Scotland having annual carbon (3%) and energy (1%) reduction targets and improvements. Recent data shows the NHS footprint levelling off with significant improvements in building energy efficiency, but improvements and activity need to be accelerated.
Reducing carbon intensity creates a significant financial opportunity. The NHS sustainable development unit suggests annual saving can be increased by £180m through through further energy-efficiency and low-carbon technology upgrades, staff engagement and improved procurement. However, identifying measures that optimise carbon and financial savings often requires specialist support.
