We are delighted to be speaking

The Institute of Government & Public Policy are hosting the 2nd annual conference on sustainable healthcare at The Royal Society of Medicine in London. You can find out more here: https://igpp.org.uk/event/National-Sustainable-Healthcare-Conference-2024/

It takes place on 22nd May from 9am to 4.30pm and is very accessible by public transport.

The conference provides an update on national ambition to deliver the world's first net zero health service, practical examples of direct interventions to decarbonise the NHS, and the crucial role of strong leadership and collaboration with industry partners, government agencies, and local communities in achieving net zero. It is a great opportunity to learn more about sustainability in health, why it matters and what we are doing about it.

Susie Vernon from the Care Without Carbon team will be speaking in the afternoon along with a host of other great speakers on the agenda for the day.
