Christmas Re-Run – Sustainability: How can industry be part of the solution?

Thursday 21st December 2023 13:00 - 14:00 (GMT)

Masterclass Details:

The NHS has committed itself to become the ‘world’s first net zero national health service’, setting out ambitious targets to achieve this in its report Delivering a ‘Net Zero’ National Health Service (October 2020). For emissions that the NHS controls directly, it will reach net zero by 2040, and for emissions the NHS can influence by 2045.

Carbon literacy will be essential to commercial success for Pharma and MedTech, with a demonstrable commitment to sustainability and change acting as a gatekeeper to the supply of medicines and medical equipment.

The NHS acknowledges that it cannot succeed in its ambitions without the support of all of its suppliers and partners. This event will show you how to identify mutually beneficial opportunities and become a part of the solution.

In this important 60-minute masterclass, climate change expert Michelle Sullivan and industry leader Derek Brown clearly explain what needs to be done by Life Sciences now to engage positively with the net-zero challenge.


Key Learning Objectives:

  • Integrated care systems (ICSs) and new models of care that focus on reducing carbon and using environmental impact as a factor in care design
  • The use of medicines accounts for around 25% of emissions within the NHS in England. The NHS is working with industry to identify products with a low carbon impact
  • The NHS uses its considerable purchasing power to influence change in the supply chain, including medical equipment, by prioritising the efficient use of supplies and low-carbon substitutions
  • Date and time
