Auckland District Health Board (GGHH member in New Zealand) has won the Excellence in Climate Action – Large Organisation category at the Enviro-Mark Solutions Awards in Auckland.
The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (a GGHH member) is joining an international movement to declare a climate emergency, becoming the first NHS trust in the UK to do so.
The declaration, made by the Trust Board on 27th June 2019, demonstrates a clear and positive commitment to take action on climate change by aiming to become carbon neutral by 2040. It follows in the footsteps of city partners Newcastle City Council and Newcastle University who have recently made similar commitments.
