Congratulations to the NHS!
A year since the NHS’s net-zero commitment in October 2020, it has reported on progress to the NHS Public Board.
Their annualised reduction target of approximately 1,260 kt CO2, has been reached—reduction equivalent to 1.7 million flights from London to New York, or 1.1 million homes in the UK.
