Sustainability matters

Across NHS Digital, we share a commitment to working sustainably. Find out about the steps we're taking to reduce our impact and how we're performing against our targets.


Our objectives

NHS Digital is committed to doing business sustainably, and since publishing our first plan in 2013, we have reduced our carbon footprint by 43%.

We have also achieved some other great milestones, including:

  • annual reductions of 15% of gas and electricity in our buildings
  • 20% cut in water usage across our estate
  • a reduction of 20% in business mileage

Sustainability in action

Employees can see sustainability in action at our sites.

You can see solar panels on our buildings, which help power our estate.

Some of our sites also support electric vehicle charging, using the solar power to charge vehicles during the day.

Green digits network

Our in-house network for sustainability is called the Green Digits, and they hold regular meetings, events, and action days.

All staff are welcome to join in, and new ideas are always welcome.
