In 2010 it was estimated that pharmaceuticals contributed to 22% of NHS England’s carbon footprint, so if we are to reduce NHS carbon emissions it is essential that we better understand the carbon footprint of pharmaceuticals. Therefore the NHS Sustainable Development Unit (SDU) is working with pharmaceutical and medical devices industry representatives, and a group of international healthcare professionals, NGOs and carbon footprinting experts, to create international guidance to aid in the uniform carbon footprinting of pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
The public consultation on this international guidance will run from June 11th until July 13th. If you would like to know more information about our pharmaceutical work and the public consultation please take a look at our dedicated webpage.
