The Impact of Paper Procurement in the NHS

The NHS has committed to reduce its carbon footprint but, aside from ensuring that legislative targets are reached, the benefits of decreasing greenhouse gas emissions are well documented. Yet the NHS faces increasing financial and service pressures; meaning that ‘green’ working is not always at the forefront of consideration. Many NHS organisations in England procure paper through the NHS Supply Chain Core Stationary list, which only contains paper produced from virgin (non-recycled) sources. As such, out of the 3.6 million reams of paper procured through NHS Supply Chain, only 29,000 were produced from recycled sources.

AMEE 2015: sustainability takes the stage in medical education

Work with healthcare students to educate and act on energy, the environment, and health

In the months before COP21 in Paris this December, Healthy Planet UK are working with student global health network Medsin to educate healthcare students on the intimate links between the high-carbon economy and human health, and the health benefits of a sustainable energy transition, and help them to take action to bring that transition about.
