In November 2020 we created our first sustainability action plan in C&V.

The action plan was challenging to us, but more of the same will not see us making the right progress towards a net zero Welsh Public Sector by 2030. We have started drafting an action plan for 21/22 and we intend seeking Board approval in November 2021. The key changes are proposed to be:
We aim to be recognised as a top 10 health system globally. Our ambitious approach to sustainability align to this aspiration. There’s a long way to go to reach a net-zero public sector by 2030 and we’ve made a start. Everyone, no matter where they sit in the Health Board has a part that they can play.
We’d love to hear about any of your ideas and quality improvement projects that will help Cardiff and Vale UHB become a more sustainable and environmentally friendly place to live and work, as well as any innovations you may have heard of for sustainability in healthcare delivery.
Cardiff & Vale University Health Board is an active entity continually improving. As a health board, we aim to exceed our responsibilities by delivering more than healthcare. We are always striving to be better. By continuing to make a difference not just for today, we hope to leave a lasting example for future generations to follow.
