How does the magazine impact the environment?

We're committed to low carbon, sustainable healthcare and recognise the relationship between our impact on the environment and that of climate change on public health and the services we provide.

To meet our responsibilities we use environmentally responsible compostable film when sending out copies of MC Magazine. It uses less carbon to produce, reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill reduces the levels of pollution in the air, groundwater and soil and provides the earth with life promoting nutrients.

It's made from potato starch and is 100% compostable and biodegradable. It can be placed into home composting bins, food waste caddies and green waste for collection. In a well-maintained compost unit with exposure to air it should compost within 12 months, converting to CO¬2, water and biomass, with no contaminants left behind. It's not intended for landfill (where it could be buried) and is not able to be recycled.

As a large organisation, the Trust has a responsibility to undertake the actions and investments to provide sustainable healthcare, both now and in the future. We're responding to the ‘Delivering a Net Zero National Health Service’ report, as well as the Greener NHS Campaign.

Our journey towards net zero and sustainability includes a timeline to align with Greener NHS guidance and we're working hard to meet the Government’s target for the NHS of net zero carbon by 2045.
