NHS managers told to go green

19th August 2009

NHS managers have been told they are in a position to make strong progress on green issues.

The NHS is the UK public sector's biggest single carbon emitter, with a carbon footprint of over 18 million tonnes of CO2, but NHS bosses have been told that with strong leadership and action, they can made a difference. A handbook, Sustaining a Healthy Future – Taking action on climate change, has been issued which gives practical guidance for NHS decision makers on reducing their organisation's carbon footprint.
