We are committed to incorporating sustainability into all aspects of our business
We believe that long term value comes from seeing success as a part of a bigger picture, encompassing people, the economy and the environment and that by incorporating good principles and a culture of sustainability into all aspects of our business we will create more value for our customers, be a part of more sustainable economies and communities, have more engaged employees and differentiate ourselves from our competitors.
Real sustainability addresses economic, social and environmental issues including, for example, fair access to opportunities for all, human rights, healthy communities, an engaged workforce, ethical business practices, climate change and availability of natural resources, balanced with economic growth and profitability.
Our success as a company and our ability to make a meaningful difference means that we have to consider the impacts of our business in all of these areas and determine how best we can apply our capabilities and resources to address them.
To demonstrate our commitment to sustainability, we supported the NHS National Sustainability Day and our pledge is being embedded across the organisation as best practice.
"NHS Shared Business Services will pledge to reduce non-essential business travel by encouraging the use of technology to facilitate meetings. This will reduce the impact on the environment by reducing business mileage, fuel and air fare."
