The journey to a greener NHS comes to a head in two key targets: net zero by 2040 for direct emissions, and net zero by 2045 for emissions it indirect emissions (not directly controlled by the NHS). 

Knowing where to focus attention for greatest impact, as well as setting a realistic and effective strategy, presents a challenge for NHS Trusts across the country.
