Let's Not Waste Case Study

Pedal power for cleaner healthcare delivery

Nationally, the NHS fleet and business travel account for around 4% of the NHS Carbon footprint, but as a community trust Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust’s (SCFT) is closer to 5.5%. Travel is a necessary part of its work in delivering care out in the community, seeing patients in their homes. A geographically diverse region means locations are harder to reach than others without a vehicle.

Travel can have a significant impact on health and environment so the trust is working hard to travel less when possible, and as efficiently as possible when it is unavoidable.
