The Capita / Sussex Community NHS Trust partnership has won the Sustainability Achievement Award at the annual IHEEM Awards.
The award recognises the organisation that has made the best use of innovative technology and sustainable practices to reduce its project’s carbon footprint.
In February 2014 Sussex Community NHS Trust set out plans to achieve a 34% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2020, with the ultimate the aim of being a carbon neutral healthcare provider. Entitled ‘Care Without Carbon’ (CWC) its strategy is based around a unique seven step approach that addresses buildings, journeys, procurement, culture, wellbeing, resilience and governance that will embed sustainability into its core operations.
The trust, working in conjunction with Capita, has already achieved a 15% reduction in emissions, despite an increase in clinical activity.
