Seminar 2 - Net Zero: How the UK is making an impact on Sustainable Healthcare

The UK’s NHS became the world’s first health service to commit to reaching net zero by 2045. This is driven by Greener NHS, local UK hospitals & authorities and business innovations & adoption of greener practices. As an example, 56 NHS Trusts are planning to install on-site solar technology within the next three years. Global warming poses a growing threat directly to the future of our planet. Climate change as a social determinant of health also directly impacts our physical and mental health. Between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250,000 additional deaths per year, from four health impact categories: malnutrition, malaria, diarrhoea and heat stress.

As such, our health systems need to adapt to this change and this raises many questions: how do we minimise health systems environmental impact? how do we build clinical transformation to adapt? how do we bring along key stakeholders and communities together towards this? This session will explore the UK, UAE and wider global perspectives on net zero healthcare for the audience to learn about best practices to take away for their own practices.

Thursday 2 February, 8:00am - 10:00am
