Healthcare Facilities

T he Workplace Footprint Tracker is used in both Acute and General Hospitals and other specialist healthcare facilities including Research Laboratories.

Healthcare provision is energy intensive, and the NHS is one of the World’s largest organisations, and astonishingly accounts for 3% of the UK’s total emissions.

Back in 2009 the Sustainable Development Unit published the NHS Carbon Reduction Strategy for England.

In the strategy, NHS trusts were mandated to reduce emissions by:
10% by 2015
26% by 2020
80% by 2050

An update in 2012 projected savings in 2015 of 5.4%, representing a 4.6% shortfall.

Demand reduction strategies are key to reducing emissions in the NHS as well as low carbon technologies such as Combined Heating and Power (link to our CHP Bureau).
