The UK Green Surgery Project is currently seeking case studies for developing sustainable surgical practices to inform the Green Surgery report, which is due to be published in late 2023. Deadline for submission is 28th February 2023.
The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CSH) is proud to announce the remarkable outcomes of the Green Team Competition held in partnership with Swansea Bay University Health Board. The combined projects produced estimated annual savings of £33,795 and 4,574,021 kgCO2e, or the carbon footprint equivalent of 13,174,024 miles driven in an average car, or 16,676 return trips between Swansea Bay and Edinburgh.
This year, Hywel Dda University Health Board selected six teams to participate in our Green Team Competition. Each team was supported by CSH to develop, run, and measure projects that add sustainable value to their service by considering the "triple bottom line". We are pleased to share that these projects have projected annual savings of £26,398.562 and 2,340,950 kgCO2e, which is the carbon equivalent of what 92,638 mature trees would absorb in a year, or 6,742,367.5 miles driven in an average car.
The Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CSH) is delighted to announce the outstanding results of the Green Team Competition it recently ran with the Christie NHS Foundation Trust. The competition resulted in projected annual savings of £554,525 and 99,403 kgCO2e for the Trust, which is the carbon equivalent of 286,299 miles driven in an average car, or 734 return trips between the Christie and Kings Cross, London.
