Cardiff and Vale Green Group

This group aims to create a supportive platform for discussion and action to reduce our carbon footprint and to promote the delivery of environmentally sustainable healthcare. 

The group allows members to develop and share knowledge, improve skills, and develop sustainability projects in our places of work and in the local area. Its ethos is to, ‘Connect, Learn, and Transform’

Connect 

Connect staff from across the health board together and with the wider climate and health movement and its leading organisations; use our position as trusted members of the community to raise the profile of climate change and the loss of biodiversity as pressing health issues, and engage staff and patients to become part of the solution. 

Learn 

Cultivate knowledge through educational events, training, webinars, and directly upskilling colleagues; integrate sustainable healthcare into post-graduate and undergraduate curriculum. 

Transform 

Transforming working practices in the health board and leading sustainability projects in the wider community. Feedback from our first meeting identified particular areas of interest and action: clinical practice, waste, energy, transport, food and biodiversity.
