Forward from Tony Halsall.

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust is committed to be a good neighbour to the community both locally and at large. We recognise that we like the NHS in generalhave a significant carbon footprint. Our participation in the Carbon Trust NHS Carbon Management Programme will help us to play a more effective part in reducing the environmental impact of healthcare.

Our target will be toreduce our emissions by 20% by 2016. We acknowledge that thiswill bea challenging target but are determined to succeed.

As part of the Carbon Management Plan all Directorates within the Trust will be required to embed carbon reduction in their day-to-day activities and business planning processes.

We are therefore investing significant funds in plant replacement and the introduction of new technology which will deliver reductions in the organisations carbon footprint.

In developing a comprehensive Carbon Management Plan, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust strives to exceed the emissions reduction targets set by the Government and the NHS.

Foreword from the Carbon Trust

Cutting carbon emissions as part of the fight against climate change should be a key priority for NHS Trusts - it's all about getting your own house in order and leading by example. The UK government has identified the NHS sector as key to delivering carbon reduction across the UK in line with the Climate Change Act targets, and the NHS Carbon Management programme is designed in response to this. It assists NHS Trusts in saving money on energy and putting it to good use in patient care, whilst making a positive contribution to the environment by lowering carbon emissions.

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust partnered with the Carbon Trust on this ambitious programme in 2010 in order to realise substantial carbon and cost savings. This Carbon Management Plan commits the NHS Trust to a target of reducing CO2 by 20% by 2016 and underpins potential financial savings to the organisation of around 3.7million by that date.

There are those that can and those that do. NHS Trusts can contribute significantly to reducing CO2 emissions. The Carbon Trust is very proud to support University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust in their ongoing implementation of carbon management.

Executive Summary

This Carbon Management Programme (CMP) is going to help the Trust look at its approach to reducing climate change through carbon reduction procedures. The Trusts plan will tackle the issue of carbon emissions head on, benefiting the social, economical and physical state of our environment. It will help the Trust comply with legislation

Climate change (Global warming) is the greatest challenge facing the world today. It is a global issue that demands a global response. The trust as a whole is hoping to achieve reductions of 20% over the next 5 years, with 08/09 being the baseline year. The carbon footprint for the trust for that year being18,614 Tonnes of CO2. The plan delivers savings in excess of the 20% target but in the prevailing financial climate it may not be possible to deliver all the identified projects in the specified timescale.

Actions to reduce our carbon emissions are outlined in eight strategic themes; policy, resources, communications, working with partners, procurement, buildings energy use, lighting and transport. There are great opportunities to make carbon savings throughout the trust with schemes such as:

Replacement of boilers

Lighting controls

New heating controls

PC Power Management

Photovoltaics (to generate our own renewable electricity)

Green Champions

Carbon Reduction Communications Strategy

From a financial and carbon reduction perspective comparisons have been made between the amount of money and carbon that would be spent or emitted should the Trust continue on the basis of the Business as Usual scenario in which no carbon management projects are pursued.

The Trust carbon footprint for the base year was 18,614 Tonnes of CO2. Costings for the schemes identified are estimated at around 3.7 million.

In the long term, embedding carbon management in policies and processes, such as procurement will be essential to maintaining a low carbon path. A Project Plan has been developed and includes governance arrangements including strategic ownership of the project.

As a Trust reducing Carbon emissions makes perfect business sense as it enhances the trusts reputation, saves money, and helps the world in its the fight against climate change.

Our vision statement

By 2016 UHMB will reduce carbon usage by 20% over 2008/09 levels and integrate carbon reduction in to all Trust operations promoting ongoing carbon reductions in order to help reduce environmental impact; improve the health of the people of Morecambe Bay and divert savings to improving patient services.


The CMP highlights good practises that are in use and enhances them. The CMP is also a great way of implementing new and exciting ways of how the Hospitals are run. For example the fact that plate heat exchangers are now a viable alternative to storage tanks, Biomass boilers can be used to take the load off gas or oil boilers. The chance to improve facilities at the hospitals around the trust will work well with the fight against climate change

The Carbon Management Programme allows for projects to be accounted for and undertaken when specified at a senior level.

1. Introduction

The NHS Strategy Saving Carbon, Improving Health sets a target for NHS Trusts to reduce their carbon emissions by at least 10% between 2007 and 2015 and to develop a Board approved carbon management strategy. University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMB) have engaged in the NHS Carbon Management Programme (NHSCMP), to develop a carbon management strategy for implementation over a five year period.

This Programme enables Trusts to highlight risks and opportunities posed by climate change and will provide a strategy with a Corporate Governance Structure to reduce carbon emissions and create cost savings over a set period of time. Over the last 4 years 43 Trusts that have already completed the programme with a further 33 participating this year.

We have set a target to reduce our emissions over this period by 20% or 3,725 Tonnes of CO2. The plan delivers savings in excess of the 20% target but in the prevailing financial climate it may not be possible to deliver all the identified projects in the specified timescale.

UHMB understands the importance of carbon reduction and the challenge of implementing the programme into the Trust. To succeed the trust has identified a committed team, including the Chief Exec and the Director of Estates and Facilities to champion carbon management.. Ways the trust are implementing the programme are as follows:

1. A systematic analysis of its carbon footprint;

1. A calculation of the financial impact to the Trust of its energy consumption and carbon emissions and the case for taking action;

1. An assess
