Together we can make a real difference

Countries around the world are at different stages of their sustainability journey. The UK seems to be leading the way, especially with environmental aspects of sustainability. In 2020, our government committed the UK to Net Zero by 2050. Following this, the NHS became the world’s first national health service to commit to become ‘Carbon Net Zero’ by 2045. This is not surprising as climate change and human health are inextricably linked.

We are proud that Wellspect shares the same ambition as the NHS and it it also has its vision set on net-zero by 2045. To this end, Wellspect has also set climate targets and defined a road map for reducing its emissions all in line with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). 

In order to reach those ambitious goals, sustainability is embedded into Wellspect's business strategy. It translates into priorities and actions across Wellspect's departments, including its Research and Developement unit.
