Our Green Plan
Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust is proud to share Our Green Plan 2022 - 2025. We seek to embed sustainability and low carbon practice in the way we offer vital healthcare services and help the NHS to become the first health service in the world with net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The climate crisis is also a health crisis. Rising temperatures and extreme weather will disrupt care and impact the health of our patients and the public, especially the most vulnerable in our society.
People with mental health issues may experience a higher degree of 'climate anxiety', and there may be co-morbidities associated with the physical impacts of climate change and a deterioration in mental health.
CWPT has a central role to play in reducing health inequalities and helping the NHS to reach net zero.
This Green Plan serves as a central document for CWPT's sustainability agenda and provides the rationale for sustainability at the Trust. Through this Green Plan, CWPT will work with our staff, patients and partners to take powerful sustainable development and climate action as part of our commitment to offer the highest quality care in our communities.
