We’re pleased to report that in the last year we have seen a 1% drop in the carbon footprint, in relation to building energy use in the NHS in England.
This is despite a 2.8% increase in levels of activity and a cold winter.
This reduction is an excellent sign that progress is being made and becoming apparent in annual measurements.
The last year’s decrease represents a saving of at least £2.9m for the NHS in England.
In addition, an increase in recycling of 39% (by weight) has significantly reduced carbon emissions and improved use of limited resources. Read more about building energy use and waste and water CO2e emissions.
Please note: The 1% drop in the building energy carbon footprint must be viewed in the context that the last four years have seen a rise of 4.3% in building energy usage. However in the last year building energy usage has started to reduce. See graphical representation below.
