In its ‘Net Zero Travel and Transport Strategy‘ the NHS has said that by 2033, staff travel emissions will be reduced by 50% through shifts to more sustainable forms of travel and electrification of personal vehicles. To get there, you will need to have the necessary infrastructure in place. 

The NHS accounts for 4% of the nation’s total carbon footprint, and according to NHS England, emissions from travel and transport account for 14% of its overall carbon footprint. This includes 4% for business travel and fleet transport, 5% for patient travel, 4% for staff commutes and 1% for visitor travel. 

Transitioning fleets to zero-emission vehicles, encouraging employees towards active forms of travel like cycling, walking or car sharing, and looking to low carbon logistics and transportation of goods using pedal power, are some of the interventions the NHS is putting in place to meet its sustainable transport objectives. 

The Sustainable Transport and Infrastructure Framework Agreement supports sustainable travel plans by providing solutions to reduce your organisations carbon output and prevent pollution. It provides transport and mobility system solutions and car parks that consider environmental, economic, and social impacts, protecting our scarce resources, building resilience to a changing climate both now and for future generations. 

The Sustainable Transport and Infrastructure Framework Agreement forms part of a wider solution that focusses on, ‘future-proofing estates and infrastructure’, helping to achieve NHSE estates and infrastructure targets.
