  • For Sustainability we call this our Journey to Deep Green- the ultimate position being Zero impact on the Environment.
    Deep Green means to have Zero Impact but also be independent of the ‘Grid’ for Utilities and could even mean to generate energy to feed into the grid.
    To do this in a sustainable way has down the line improvements for improving
  • Zero Impact = Zero Landfill, Energy generation, Water Minimisation, Travel plans to reduce Carbon
    Behavioural Change = NHS is the largest employer in Europe, Engaging with its employees to make changes is one of the most difficult things to do, creating change is the start but continuous training and measuring is required to ensure the changes become the culture of the organisation.
    Efficiencies = Sometimes we have to challenge the red tape and the processes that do not make sense, this is challenging but is achievable by taking a common sense approach and having a real partnership this is achievable
    Commercialisation = From the smallest things such as baling cardboard and white paper to generating surplus energy to the grid there are many opportunities for the NHS to commercialise their services. Many large acute hospitals will attract better pricing and we can work with them and the local communities around them to benefit the small Drs and health centres whilst generating an income. By using the private sector partners this can all be wrapped up into the contracts with no impact for the Trust.
    Continuous Training = Is so important as the churn and movement withing the NHS is massive, it is also important to ensure ths happens to embed change
    Technology = Automatic systems create efficiencies and frees up time to focus on core work
    EPC = Funding
  • On site Waste Treatment
    Future Proofing = Energy Prices, Waste treatment costs, Water purchase costs
    Reducing Environmental Impact = Travel for employees, sub contractors and products, understanding embodied Carbon and the impacts that this has on the health of the nation.
    Reducing risk = finding alternatives that reduce on going risk for example the on site treatment of waste means that the waste is not transported on the road and certain stages are taken out of the process where it could potentially become a risk.
    Energy Generation = WTE, CHP, PV, Energy prices will only go up, the NHS has the opportunity to look to 2050 and beyond in their vision. This should include energy generation and where possible being in a position where they can export energy to the grid as this will create an income for them.
    Deep Green Position is the same vision that the NHS has, we want to be able to carry out our core activities without impacting on the Environment
  • Reduce Environmental Impact
    Zero Domestic Waste to Landfill
    Reduce Carbon Footprint
    Improve Compliance
    Reduce Cost and Risk
    Work with the Local Community and Trust to improve the communities in which we work

    • 3. Barts Health Our portfolio • • • • • • • • • • Large acute teaching hospitals Centre of excellence for cardiac, cancer, stroke & trauma services Six hospital sites spanning four East London Boroughs >570,000M2 of real estate Workforce of 15,000 staff >1.3M patients treated every year Turnover of £1.25bn £1.3bn PFI project rebuilding two hospitals Diverse building stock Largest NHS Trust in UK
    • 4. Waste & Spend Spend to save • Barts Health’s current annual spend for all waste is £2.5M • Barts Health’s annual tonnage for waste disposal is currently around 5300 tonnes. • By having a dedicated team of waste monitoring staff to audit waste, including the roll out of offensive waste implementation, means we will spend less, year on year, for our waste disposal costs. • Offensive waste is half the cost to dispose of than orange “infectious” clinical waste bags. We will have every hospital site within the Trust switched over in the use of offensive waste by the end of 2014.
    • 5. Partnership approach to Waste Working together to make change happen • Appointed SKANSKA as our preferred Trust-wide FM Service Provider to manage all waste services at all hospital sites. • SKANSKA employ SUST-N; a dedicated monitoring team of auditors managing waste compliance and staff training. • SUST-N produce monthly waste audits for each hospital site, detailing each clinical areas waste disposing practices at source. • Using SUST-N helps our Trust improve waste compliance, engages our staff in behavioral change practices, heightens awareness and continues to save our Trust money. and SUST-N Team
    • 6. Innovation Standardise to consolidate Best Practice • Barts Health swap shop established in partnership with Skanska to re-use and re-deploy unwanted office furniture and supplies around the Trust, saving our hospitals buying new. • Will be implementing Sharpsmart’s reusable sharps container system throughout the Trust next year, to help reduce our carbon foot print and our sharps injuries. • Rolling out cardboard baling from two hospital sites to four hospital sites. • Rolling out food waste to AD from four hospital sites to all six hospitals within the Trust. • Rolling out offensive waste disposal practice from three hospital sites to all six hospitals within the Trust.
