Sustainable Development Report out now

Monday 24 July 2017

We are pleased to announce the launch of our 2015-16 Sustainable Development Report.

The report focuses on how we are helping the NHS to:

  • improve due diligence around labour standards
  • improve the efficiency of deliveries
  • procure sustainable and nutritional food
  • be a lower carbon organisation

It also outlines our commitment to deliver sustainability benefits for NHS customers and places strong emphasis on minimising the impact of the business on the environment.

Key highlights include:

  • How the renewal of our fleet in 2016 is supporting the NHS to be a lower carbon organisation
  • Reporting year on year reductions in gas and electricity consumption in our offices and warehouses, whilst meeting requirements for temperature control.
  • Widening our ethical procurement programme to ensure due consideration is given to labour standards. Over 200 suppliers are now contractually bound to implement the Labour Standards Assurance System (LSAS)
  • Reporting huge reductions in the amount of water consumed over the past 2 years due to the installation of waterless urinals at NHS Supply Chain
