Pioneering sustainable healthcare solutions at Isla Health

Pioneering sustainable healthcare solutions

At Isla Health, we believe that innovation and sustainability go hand in hand, especially for healthcare. As a trusted partner to the National Health Service, we are dedicated to not only delivering innovative healthcare technology but also to minimise our environmental impact and contributing to a healthier planet.

Our environmental commitment

Reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable healthcare practices are at the core of our environmental initiatives. We have developed a comprehensive carbon reduction plan, aligning with NHS guidelines (1) and UK Government’s Procurement Policy Note 06/21 (2), to systematically reduce our carbon footprint across all operations.

Our approach

Our goals for the first quarter of 2024 were to calculate our baseline emissions that will set the base for our future carbon accounting reporting, and to set our carbon emission targets in line with the overall NHS target of reaching Net Zero by 2050.

Our carbon reduction plan

Our carbon reduction plan outlines our strategies and actions to mitigate carbon emissions throughout our entire value chain. By following NHS guidelines and best practices in carbon reduction, we aim to achieve measurable and meaningful results.

Transparency and accountability

Transparency and accountability are fundamental to our sustainability efforts. We are committed to regularly monitoring and reporting our environmental performance, sharing our progress with stakeholders, and seeking continuous improvement. By fostering transparency and accountability, we aim to build trust with our customers, partners, and the communities we serve – building a sustainable healthcare system for a brighter and greener future.
