It is a great way of showing that we are on the front foot when it comes to carbon management best practices. We have achieved these targets by improving heating controls and increasing lighting and heating efficiency. This initial reduction is part of an ongoing plan and we are committed to making further reductions in the future.”
Harry Morrison, General Manager, the Carbon Trust Standard, said: “Being certified with the Carbon Trust Standard is proof that an organisation has taken genuine action to reduce its impact on climate change. We congratulate The North West London Hospitals NHS Trust on this achievement.”
The Carbon Trust Standard recognises organisations for real carbon reduction. Based on a rigorous and independent assessment, it certifies that organisations have measured, managed and reduced their carbon emissions across their operations, and are committed to reducing them year on year.
