NHS launches sustainability strategy to help save £1bn
A new sustainable development strategy has been launched to help towards the £1bn of savings needed across the NHS supply chain by 2016, writes Edie.net.
The document reveals the “hidden” cost savings that can come from focusing on waste reduction and ethical sourcing.
The strategy document reads: “Making sustainable choices does not necessarily cost more and can deliver efficiency savings in how we do business. We have realised financial savings and cost-avoidance by optimising the efficiency of our own distribution network and supply chain.”
