Delivering Green Plans

Now that all Trusts and Integrated Care Systems have produced their inaugural Green Plans, the focus turns to delivery.

We can work with you to deliver your targets and help ensure you contribute to the NHS targets. The next three years will be critical in not just delivering on the Green Plan, but also in the identification of emerging requirements, innovations and technology available to embed sustainable operations through services and buildings.

We can use our extensive knowledge and experience to guide you through and keep you up to date and on track.

Carbon Reduction Planning

The NHS estate is an integral part of the health system’s efforts to become more sustainable and reduce its carbon footprint, as it is responsible for approximately four per cent of the UK’s carbon emissions every year.

e can work with you to help answer three key questions to drive carbon reduction and increase the sustainability of your existing estate: 

1.  How well do you utilise your buildings?

2. How well does the building fabric conserve energy?
3. How 'green' are your energy inputs?

Social Value Assessments

With such a pivotal role that Integrated Care Systems play in society, delivery of the NHS social value priority areas is key to making a difference by maximising social, economic, and environmental benefits, improve health outcomes and tackle health inequalities, in addition to increasing value from every pound spent and delivering on the NHS commitment to reach net zero carbon by 2045.

We can support you with the development of Social Value strategies and help you embed social value throught the organisation.

Our Impact 

We work in partnership with NHS and public sector organisations to unlock complex estate challenges, planning, developing, and maintaining the highest quality, sustainable health and public buildings that serve the needs of communities, now and in the future. 

At every stage we look for opportu
