Green Plan – our commitment to help the NHS achieve Net Zero by 2040

Our Green Plan is our ICS strategy to decarbonise our local healthcare system to support the NHS’ national ambition to reach Net Zero by 2040.

As a system, we are now preparing to become a statutory body from 1st July. The statutory ICS will be will be led by an NHS Integrated Care Board (ICB), a new organisation with responsibility for our functions and budgets.

Preparations are currently underway to transition to the new Integrated Care Board (ICB) format. In line with this, we are finalising our Green Plan to ensure it is both ready for formal ICB sign-off in July and that it is formed in accordance with our internal governance framework. Once this process is complete our finalised Green Plan will be published on this page of our website.
