NHS England publishes Carbon Reduction Plan Guidance

By February 16, 2023No Comments

From April 2023, for all contracts above £5 million per annum, the NHS will require suppliers to publish a Carbon Reduction Plan (CRP) for their UK Scope 1 and 2 emissions and a subset of scope 3 emissions as a minimum (aligning with Procurement Policy Notice 06/21).

A CRP identifies a supplier’s current carbon footprint and their plan to achieve net zero emissions. The NHS will require its suppliers to have a publicly available CRP on their website and to share their CRP information as part of the procurement process.

NHS England has published detailed guidance to support suppliers to prepare their CRPs. ​
