The NHS is recognised as the first health system to embed net zero into legislatation in the effort to make healthcare environmentally sustainable. But, we know that more can be done and that learning from other nations will remain crucial.

This session will draw on the experiences of local, national and international health leaders in their efforts to develop environmentally sustainable health systems for the benefit of patients, staff and the public. It will explore what they have achieved to date, the challenges they have faced, as well as the tools and international collaborations that have aided our efforts to go further.
