Trust cuts carbon use

A SILVER level award has been achieved by Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for driving down its transport carbon footprint.

It has reduced its footprint by 14.4 per cent – a cut of 112,855kg of carbon – between 2005/06 and 2009/10, according to figures by the Energy Saving Trust.

Jug Johal, trust head of transport, car parking and security said: “The trust has proactively been working on its green credentials for a number of years now so it’s a great result to achieve a silver level award as it shows the actions taken are having a positive effect.”
