What will you learn?
At this event, experts will discuss how carbon emissions can be addressed in health care and how taking ownership of many small changes can help to move the sustainability agenda forward, while also discussing the barriers to change. We will explore the issue through the lens of the environmental impact of metered-dose inhalers, used by people with asthma & COPD, as 4% of the total NHS carbon footprint savings expected to be realised through a ‘shift to lower carbon inhalers’1.
Designing and implementing a greener future is still a huge task, requiring input from many different groups – from national policy experts and GPs, to the pharmaceutical industry and the people who use health services. Join us to hear how the NHS is making the shift and what more needs to happen to transform the system by 2050 and make the NHS a greener healthcare system.
