Day 1: Wales & the World

Climate change is the biggest threat to our planet, our communities, our families and each other.  If you have registered to attend the Wales Climate Week 2021 virtual event, you will hear from a range of influential people committed to the Welsh climate and sustainability agenda.

The Welsh Government has declared a climate emergency and is taking action as a globally responsible Wales to reach a net zero carbon emissions target within the public sector by 2030.

The medical products we use everyday in the Health Board create carbon emissions. And while many of these products are designed to be thrown away after use, we’re committed to making more sustainable choices. 

Weve set up a pilot project that aims to reduce our environmental and financial impact by supplying anaesthetic nitrous oxide gas to some wards by portable cylinders instead of older piped systems.
