As a Trust, we acknowledge the significant challenges posed by the impact of climate change, as well as the repercussions that this could have on our patients throughout Doncaster and Worksop.
As a Trust, we believe it is truly important that we operate as environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable as possible. Implementing the actions presented within this Green Plan will help ensure that the Trust is creating the best environment for our staff and patients, all of which, we believe, will help us in our overall vision of being the ‘Safest Trust in England, outstanding in all that we do.’
As one of the largest employers within the two towns we serve, operating across three major sites, a result of this is that we have a significant environmental footprint through our carbon emissions, contribution to air pollution and production of waste materials.
Within this plan, we have detailed a proactive and positive approach that our Trust can take to do our part to reduce and negate the impact of the above and that climate change may have on local people.
This comprehensive strategy will enable us to reduce our contribution to these factors and will help to mitigate potential impacts of climate change. Something we believe strongly is our social responsibly.
We need to embed sustainability within our organisations and must work together with our partners and the NHS to improve our sustainability and collaborate further in to advance our green agenda.
For the Trust to be a truly sustainable organisation, we need all our staff to play their part in delivering this Green Plan and we strongly encourage all of our colleagues to work together to achieve the aims which are set out in this plan.
