System Governance


The health and sustainability agendas drive policy which supports individuals, society and organisations to behave in a sustainable, fair and health-conscious way.

What do we mean by System Governance?

This requires creating a standardised approach to measuring and monitoring sustainability and minimising the use of resources across the health and care system. A legislative framework is needed with public reporting as a core organisational indicator. Accounting for sustainability becomes a component of good governance as well as whole life cycle costing. This information is visible to all, in real time, and is incorporated into operational and strategic planning.
