The NHS currently has a carbon footprint of 18 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year, which constitutes 3.2% of total carbon emissions and 25% of public sector emissions in England.
As part of the strategy, the NHS has set itself the ambition of achieving a 10% reduction in its 2007 carbon footprint by 2015. The strategy document recommends a number of important actions for the NHS to become a leading sustainable and low carbon organisation.
