We help the NHS to protect and improve patient care by making their operations more efficient, resilient and reducing energy costs.

The NHS is a major contributor to the UK’s carbon footprint, creating around 4-5% of the country’s carbon emissions1. Without effective action, climate change will have profound implications for the health and wellbeing of the UK’s population; the smooth delivery of our health and social care services; and the management of critical infrastructure.

The Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Service report laid out the NHS’s national decarbonisation strategy. It set a clear goal of becoming the world’s first net zero national health service, by becoming net zero across Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2040 and across Scope 3 emissions by 2045.

Now, these national targets need to be translated into action. Some obvious high-level interventions will be needed, such as upgrades to building infrastructure. But this top-down approach means it can be very difficult for an individual trust or hospital to see what decarbonisation means for their specific site. We have a wealth of experience in helping healthcare providers to bridge the gap between national strategies and on-the-ground action.

We know that your net zero ambitions need to be delivered at a time when funding shortfalls and higher input costs have put budgets under immense pressure. Our unique combination of strategic guidance, industry expertise, innovative technology, flexible funding and full lifecycle support means we can help you to deliver an Energy Pathway that’s both environmentally and economically viable.
