Dr Matt Sawyer of SEE Sustainability has created a free guide for primary care showing what 'Declaring a Climate Emergency' means and what it can achieve - with help from Livvy Drake, Sustainability and Behaviour Change Consultant, Sustainable Sidekicks.
The HealthCare Without Harm report on Global Road Map for Health Care Decarbonization demonstrated several high impact and key actions to reach Net Zero for the health sector. High level recommendations included declaring a climate emergency and developing roadmaps for decarbonisation.
"Primary care in the UK should have its own bespoke roadmap(s), practice wide 'Green Action Plans' to decarbonise all the hotspots, and to declare a climate emergency at practice level, PCN level and CCG level.
We know the climate crisis is a health crisis. We need to act accordingly."
