Green CHP

Sustainable Facilities are one of our five strategic aims within our CHP Business Plan  and Sustainability is one of our four corporate social responsibility pillars.  We are embedding our Green Plan into our business, committing resources and the action we will take to ensure it is a success.

CHP Green Plan ‘a Greener CHP, a Greener NHS’

The CHP Green Plan ‘A Greener CHP, a Greener NHS’ outlines how we are working with customers, LIFTCos, ICSs and suppliers to contribute to the NHS net zero carbon ambitions.   As part of the NHS family, we are committed to supporting our customers with their sustainability ambitions including to reach net zero carbon. (Greener NHS).

Green Vision

Our Green vision is to put sustainable development at the heart of our company to ensure our estate and operations are as efficient, sustainable and resilient as they can possibly be.

Our Green Plan objectives include:

  • Corporate CHP to be Net Zero Carbon by 2030
  • LIFT Portfolio to be Net Zero Carbon by 2040
  • Meet our annual reporting requirements and obligations as a landlord such as the minimum energy efficiency standard (MEES) and energy performance certificates (EPC).

We set out a roadmap against three themes:

  • Embedding the Green Plan
  • Digital and data
  • LIFTCo Partnerships

We will decarbonise CHP corporate activities and reduce the environmental impact of running the organisation including waste reduction, increasing recycling procuring renewable electricity.

In 2021 we worked on baseline data, including a developing a Digital Estate Strategic Plan, and worked with LIFTCo colleagues on data gathering. In 2022 we are working on delivery plans, targets and actions.  Everyone at CHP can play their part to meet our sustainability goals and we will be supporting staff to make changes.  In 2022 we will launch an energy awareness course.
