The re-tendering of our waste contracts provides an ideal opportunity for the Trust and its partners to fundamentally rethink our approach to 'waste' management. In line with our progressive sustainable development strategy, we are looking to transform the management of our 'waste', and adopt a forward looking, integrated and environmentally sustainable solution to both the reduction and management of waste. Central to this shift in approach is the Trust's commitment to environmental protection, carbon reduction and the circular economy.
"Reducing overall volumes of waste together with good 'waste' management is critical to reducing the negative environmental impacts and carbon footprint of hospitals". Joaquim Duarte, Sustainable Waste Manager.
