Energy and Environment

Climate change and the way we interact with our environment have a significant impact on our health. That's why the NHS is on a mission to reach net zero carbon by 2040.

With over 3000 properties in our portfolio, NHS Property Services is in a prime position to lead the transition to net zero. Read the NHSPS Green Plan to learn how we're reducing our carbon footprint and environmental impact.

Each one of us can help contribute to a greener NHS. Take a look at the resources on this page to get started. You can also follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter for the latest tips and updates.
