Switching secondary care across the NHS to LED lightning would save £3b over the next three decades.12 By adopting the NHS Estates Net Zero Strategy ‘making every kilowatt hour count’ mantra, we can reduce emissions, improve air quality and transition to renewable energy through making the interventions highlighted below which, shows the total NHS carbon savings that can be made.50 Strategic objectives To support our primary care estate, establish a base line and action plan for making every kilo watt hour count in transitioning to a lower carbon estate. To support system partners on transitioning to 100% renewable electricity sources, using LED light bulbs and adopting smart systems to underpin future investment opportunities. Developing and interlinking where possible a range of system-wide mechanisms that support our net zero transition including shared spaces, collective purchasing, active travel and transport infrastructure and hybrid working models. Why it matters The NHS estate and its supporting facilities services account for 15% of all NHS carbon emissions (including waste).12 Carbon in our estates isn’t just ‘operational’ (heating, building performance and utilities) it’s also ‘embedded carbon’ (from the materials used, construction methods, transport and the waste produced). How we procure, build, refurbish and undertake maintenance all impacts our carbon footprint.51 A holistic approach is required. Our buildings and infrastructure need to be ready for climatic changes and extreme weather events such as extreme heat.37 Key activity Make every KW/ Hour count by investing in energy saving measures and identifying retrofitting opportunities. Encourage a ‘whole life’ carbon approach to our estates recognising that we must reduce construction impacts, operational carbon (energy use) and increase renewable energy. Collaborate with system partners on alternative models of energy generation and funding mechanisms including community energy, onsite renewables and collective purchasing. Actively link greenspaces plans and biophilic design principles into our estates strategies with wilding and planting projects.
