Working together to create a greener future
In October 2020, the NHS published its ‘Delivering a Net-Zero NHS’ report, which set out a clear target of how it intends to reach net zero for its carbon footprint by 2040. For this target to become a reality, every organisation must do its part.
As stated in Kent and Medway’s Interim Integrated Care Strategy, integrated care system (ICS) leaders signed a pledge, making a commitment to:
- work together to reduce economic and health inequalities
- support social and economic development
- improve public service outcomes
- make sure services are excellent quality and good value for money.
We believe we will effectively serve our communities and our staff.
Through a collective approach, we can better tackle the climate emergency and support longer-term health and wellbeing outcomes.
To highlight the important actions happening across the ICS, we've captured achievements on different aspects of the green agenda.
