NGH keeps it green
NGH has maintained its prestigious Investors in the Environment Green Award following a recent assessment.
The Green Award is given to businesses who meet and exceed their targets to reduce their carbon footprint and environmental impact. To achieve and maintain the award NGH is required to achieve a minimum 2% improvement on resource efficiency each year from an agreed baseline figure.
Clare Topping, NGH’s sustainability lead, was also recognised with a Best Green Champion Award in recognition of her efforts and achievements that have gone above and beyond. She has ensured NGH has consistently achieved sustainability targets and brought about innovative actions to support NGH to become more environmentally-friendly.
Stuart Finn, Director of Estates and Facilities at NGH, said ‘We’ve worked had year after year to improve the impact that NGH has on the environment. Clare has led this work with dedication and enthusiasm. I am delighted that her efforts have been recognised. These Awards demonstrate our commitment to the environment and highlight the importance of the work we do.’
NGH has also been recognised as one of only 20% of NHS trusts to have excellent reporting of their sustainability initiatives. The Certificate of Excellence was awarded following an analysis of all provider and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) annual reports to evaluate sustainability content by the Sustainable Development Unit (SDU), NHS Improvement and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA)
