A city health trust is saving energy and money after introducing a range of efficiency measures.

Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust has cut its energy usage and costs after adopting the eco strategy, which includes using LED lighting and alterative heating and waste methods at most SHSC sites.

Mark Gamble, head of estates at SHSC, said: “NHS targets mean we must cut carbon emissions by more than a third by 2020 to comply with the Climate Change Act 2008. This makes energy a key area for us to tackle.”
