SDU co-authored paper on how the NHS can support the UN Sustainable Development Goals

A newly published paper shows how the SDU’s Sustainable Development Assessment Tool can support delivery of the UN SDGs.

As one of the biggest organisations in the world NHS in England can contribute considerably to the UK's efforts to embedding the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN’s SDGs). In order to optimise this, this study evaluated and reconceptualised the Good Corporate Citizenship tool to create the Sustainable Development Assessment Tool for health and care organisations in England.

The tool will support organisations to build their mandatory Sustainable Development Management Plans, as part of the National Public Health Outcomes Framework. Alignment of the tool to the UN’s SDGs provides an opportunity for health and care organisations to demonstrate accountability and contribution to the UN’s set of transformational goals.
