Our Green Plan – more than just reducing our emissions

We are in the process of developing a Green Plan, outlining our vision and strategy for how we will achieve our ambition of becoming net carbon zero.

Our Green Plan at MKUH extends beyond simply reducing our carbon emissions. With our central role in the heart of the Milton Keynes community, and being one of the largest employers in the area, it is our responsibility to lead by example and show others what is possible.

As such, our Green Plan will encompass our impact on the local community, from an environmental, societal and financial point of view. This includes everything from the staff we employee, how we work with schools and others educational partners and the way in which we conduct ourselves. Below are just some of the areas that we are looking to explore as part of our sustainability programme:

  • Recycling and reducing waste
  • Travel and transport
  • Procurement
  • Energy management
  • Wellness and wellbeing
  • Biodiversity
