Collaboration & partnerships

During this session, the panel will explore the growing threat to health presented by climate change and air pollution, and the opportunities presented by a net-zero NHS, both in terms of health outcomes and care delivery.

We will also look in depth at how the system, trusts and ICSs are rising to meet this challenge through (but not limited to) implementing refreshed Green Plans. Finally, we will look at how we can overcome the challenges and capitalise on the opportunities that lie ahead on the road to net zero.
