A network for sustainable health and care in Wales.
Our aim is to make health and care services climate smart. Our vision is sustainable healthcare that protects the health of people and the planet; we can’t have one without the other.
We recognise that health and care must play an active role in limiting global temperature rise.

Health and care must play an active role in limiting global temperature rise. We want to ensure care is delivered in a way that maximises positive health outcomes and avoids both financial waste and harmful environmental impacts, while adding social value at every opportunity.
Wales became the first country in the world to put this goal into legislation with the Future Generations Well-Being Act 2015. This gives us the ambition, permission and legal obligation to work together in our communities, to bring about transformation. This network acts as an anchor for sustainable health and care development. Be inspired, get equipped in your area of work, and link up with like-minded people to build on this vision; protecting the health of people and the planet.
