Care Without Carbon – our strategy

Created by the NHS, for the NHS, Care Without Carbon is a simple framework for delivering sustainable healthcare – cutting carbon, saving money and supporting workforce wellbeing.

Care Without Carbon

Developed by Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with Capita, Care Without Carbon provides a multi-award-winning model, designed to meet national policy requirements on sustainability and carbon reduction in the NHS. It is recognised by the NHS Sustainable Development Unit as a best practice approach for creating a Sustainable
Development Management Plan.

“We believe that all healthcare organisations should aspire to delivering care in a way that eliminates harmful environmental impacts and puts sustainability at the heart of the business model”
Paula Head, Chief Executive, Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust

Since its creation in 2013 we have worked across the NHS, supporting Trusts and commissioners on their journey to becoming more sustainable.

How it works

Care Without Carbon provides a proven framework for developing and
implementing your own Sustainable Development Management Plan (SDMP).

The beauty of Care Without Carbon is its simplicity. Based around seven steps, it ensures all aspects of sustainability are captured in a flexible and
integrated model that can be tailored to suit any NHS organisation.
