Our practice is thrilled to join the Green Impact for Health Toolkit, and we are actively working to reduce our carbon footprint.
This initiative acknowledges the urgent link between climate and health. Healthcare in the UK is responsible for 4-5% of the country's carbon emissions. To safeguard the health of current and future generations, we must operate sustainably within the planet's limits.
Many planet-friendly solutions also boost our health. Prioritizing a plant-based diet, active travel, exercise in nature, avoiding smoking, and reducing pollution all improve our well-being, reduce medication needs, benefit the NHS, and reduce healthcare's carbon footprint.
