King’s ranked as Top 10 hospital in C02 reduction league
24 November 2011 - We are ranked in the top ten NHS organisations, in a table recently published by the Environment Agency
The carbon reduction league reveals the performance of all the organisations who have signed up to The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC). The aim of the CRC is to improve energy efficiency and to cut emissions in large public and private organisations. The results of the table are based on energy efficiency savings that have already been made and steps that have already been taken to reduce energy consumption in the future.
The CRC performance league includes 2,013 companies, in both the private and public sector. We rank 121st overall, which is above the likes of J Sainsbury PLC, British Airways PLC and Walt Disney International LTD. Out of 604 public companies listed, King’s ranked 35th.
We reduced our Carbon emissions by 12% in 2010/11 compared to the previous year, and we have set a target in our Carbon Management plan to reduce carbon emissions by a further 13% by 2014.
Cathal Griffin, our Carbon Reduction Officer at Kings, says:
”This is fantastic news for King’s; it is recognition of our hard work and committed approach towards reducing carbon emissions.”
