Naomi Makin holding the certificate of excellenceBradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised for excellent sustainability reporting by NHS Improvement, the Sustainable Development Unit (SDU) and the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA).

The Care Trust received a certificate of excellence following an assessment of its annual report. High quality reporting on sustainability is recognised as a fundamental way in which organisations can demonstrate their commitment to embedding environmental, social and financial sustainability. Of the 432 NHS organisations across England which were assessed this year, only 22 per cent were selected for the accolade.

Good sustainability reporting was identified in areas across the Trust including leadership and engagement; resources (including energy, water and waste); travel; procurement; adaptation and transformation; and new models of care.

The Trust’s Energy and Environment Manager, Naomi Makin, said: “We are thrilled to be able to share this achievement. As a Trust, we are committed to embedding sustainable development across our organisation to reduce waste, save money and ensure that we are able to continue to provide high-quality services and protect the environment for future generations at the same time.”
