NHS environmental sustainability guidance map - May 2022

Lisa Robertson and Charley Spicer

13 May 2022

The HFMA has produced an NHS environmental sustainability guidance map. The map brings together the key guidance, tools and examples to support the NHS in meeting its commitments to environment sustainability. This update provides links to nine new items from national bodies, as well as recent outputs from HFMA.

The NHS is the largest employer in the UK and the health and care system in England is responsible for an estimated 4-5% of the country’s carbon footprint. With a wealth of material available, the HFMA’s Environmental Sustainability Special Interest Group has created a map of key guidance to support members in developing an effective approach to environmental sustainability.

Aimed at all those working in the NHS, in particular NHS boards, finance teams and clinical colleagues, the purpose of the map is to highlight the published resources that support the development of environmental sustainability in the NHS.
Whatever your level of expertise in this area, the map is a helpful tool with links to key documents all in one place.

The map is split into three sections:
• Strategic framework
• Enabling environmental sustainability
• Specific examples of environmental sustainability.

The map will be updated periodically as new guidance is produced If you would like to flag additional material to be included in the next update of this map, please contact lisa.robertson@hfma.org.uk.
