Climate change represents a major threat to human health, patient care continuity as well as quality of care.

Healthcare systems account for over 4% of global CO2 emissions, which is considerably higher than other sectors.

New Victoria Hospital is committed to reducing the impact our daily operations have on the environment and embracing the change as a healthcare provider in our southwest London and Surrey community.

2023 will be dedicated to finalising a Carbon Footprint Reduction Plan that will be published once available.

Carbon Footprint Reduction Pledge

Our commitment to carbon reduction:


  • We will invest more in low-energy LED lights & energy-saving projects.


    • We encourage our team members to walk, cycle or share a car to commute to work.


    • We will be reviewing all our consumables and avoid using disposable items wherever possible.
    • We will reduce our waste volume by tackling our key waste streams and improving segregation and recycling rates.


    • We will increase plant-based menu options for our patients and staff.


    • We will support our staff through advice and education. We will encourage them to take practical steps to reduce their carbon footprint during their daily activities at work and at home.
