Our Carbon Reduction and Innovation Group won the energy efficiency award at the HSJ Efficiency Awards 2011.

Efficiency is clearly a significant area of focus for the health service and these awards showcased initiatives developed by dedicated and talented individuals in the NHS.

Saving energy saves money and we are becoming greener across the organisation. For example, we have examined how we buy goods and services, store and use items, transport and dispose of them. Over 60 staff have become carbon champions and their support has been crucial to deliver energy saving projects.

We want a greener future and the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre is a model for sustainable design and construction and features photovoltaics, a healing garden, green roof and natural lighting. The Centre has been designed to provide the highest level of patient care and comfort alongside excellent building energy efficiency.

Trevor Payne, our director of estates & facilities, said "I am delighted that the Trust has won this award. It recognises all of the hard work that trust staff and energy champions have done in their areas to support our drive to provide sustainable healthcare at UCLH and to be more energy and carbon efficient."
