NNUH Joins Global Green and Healthy Hospitals movement

As part of our mission to get to net zero, we have joined Global Green and Healthy Hospitals (GGHH), an international community of hospitals, healthcare facilities, health systems and health organisations all united with the goal of making a more sustainable future for healthcare.

The Global Green and Healthy Hospitals Community is the largest sustainable healthcare movement in the world with over 1,600 members in 70 countries, allowing for a phenomenally wide range of different perspectives in tackling the issue.

The scheme offers a wide range of benefits, including their comprehensive progress-tracking software, Hippocrates, which can be used to measure and quantify all the actions that we take in reducing our environmental footprint.  This will be hugely beneficial in our benchmarking and validation as we reform and implement new sustainable models of care, shift to increased digital healthcare delivery and think about more preventative medicine moving forward.

Dr Amy Greengrass, Clinical Lead for Sustainability, said: “This presents us with the fantastic opportunity to be a part of an ever-growing community that all share the same commitment of becoming a more sustainable healthcare organisation.”

“This also means that we will be able to show you every change and step being made along the way to net zero!”

Additionally, the group offers the chance to participate in innovative new sustainable pilot schemes and research opportunities meaning that we can be a part of progress in the environmental healthcare sector going forward.

The community also includes a library of over 150 case studies that can be used to inspire initiatives throughout the NNUH, as well as the latest sustainable healthcare news provided directly from the European Commission, parliament, council, and member states meaning that NNUH will always be on the forefront of environmental knowledge.
