Greener NHS: Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Service

This report set outs a strategy for the National Health Service (NHS) in England to become ‘carbon net zero’ by 2040 for the emissions the NHS controls directly and 2045 for the emissions the NHS has the ability to influence. It describes the modelling and analytics underpinning the NHS carbon footprint, trajectories to net zero and the interventions that are needed to achieve that ambition, including across estates, medicines, supply chain, transport and travel, care models and the workforce.

Intended users

Health professionals and health managers working on plans for low carbon sustainable health systems. Ministry of Health and health professionals and health managers in other countries to learn from the UK experience and adapt to their own context.
