The decision by the NHS to become the first national health system to commit to carbon net-zero comes at a time where climate change is having devastating effects on public health. Outdoor air pollution, linked to major conditions such as heart disease and asthma, cuts a staggering three years of human life expectancy on average.
The NHS has recognised it is time for change – and Quadrant Health is here to bring you best practice insights in greenifying the UK’s health sector.

The NHS announced a four-step analytical process to improve its net-zero goals. Quadrant Health will look closely at this analysis and report on the carbon reductions available across the system, net-zero interventions and projections for the decrease in emissions.
