Cheshire CCG Carbon Footprint

Climate change and air pollution poses a major threat to our health now and for future generations. Air pollution is the greatest environmental threat to health, responsible for 1 in 20 deaths in the UK. By reducing harmful carbon emissions, we will improve health and save lives. 

That’s why the NHS became the world's first health system to commit to reaching net zero carbon by 2045.

In order to find out Cheshire CCG's biggest areas of emissions, we calculated the carbon footprint of the organisation and mapped how it has changed from 2019/20 to 2020/21, and put recommendations in place for reductions when we merge into the Cheshire & Merseyside Integrated Care System.
