New guidance on carbon footprinting models of care

The Coalition for Sustainable Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices (CSPM) has produced innovative new guidance to enable sustainability to be considered when designing new models of care.
The suite of documents will allow users to consistently appraise environmental impacts of health care pathways and can also be used when redesigning existing models or investigating the benefits of prevention.

A main document providing general requirements is accompanied by a set of modules for specific activities.

The guidance can be used by anyone interested in understanding the sustainability of health and care systems.  In particular is has been designed for use by:

  • Patients
  • Policy makers and regulators
  • Healthcare providers
  • Suppliers
  • Sustainability practitioners
