Cardiff and Vale Green Group

The Cardiff and Vale Green Group is launching in November 2021!

The Cardiff and Vale Green Group is working to reduce the hospital’s impact on climate change and to promote the delivery of environmentally sustainable healthcare.  It forms part of a wider network of healthcare professionals across Wales as part of Green Health Wales

Green Health Wales is a network of healthcare professionals across Wales who recognise that the climate and ecological emergency is a health emergency.

We hope to deliver sustainable healthcare through, ‘Connect, Learn, and Transform.’

Connect

Connect staff with the wider climate and health movement and its leading organisations; use 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 practice at the hospital and leading sustainability projects in the wider community; key areas identified by staff for action are: waste, energy, transport, food and biodiversity.
