This week (w/co 20 February) we are celebrating our second UHSussex Environment Week, marking the first anniversary of our Patient First, Planet First Green Plan.
Hear more from Karen Geoghegan, Executive Lead for Environmental Sustainability, about what we’ve achieved so far, our focus areas looking ahead, and the ways colleagues and the public can support our aim to reach Net Zero carbon by 2040.
Meanwhile, if you work at UHSussex – don’t miss the programme of events taking place throughout the week, from green travel roadshows, to security bike marking and maintenance sessions, free breakfast for colleagues who cycle, and an online discussion around how we can nurture a gloves off culture with expert speakers on MS Teams (Thursday 23rd February 1pm-2pm – add the event to your diary – staff only).
Plus, we are running a competition for staff where you can put your knowledge to the test and potentially win a bike! We are also encouraging colleagues to share a green pledge outlining the small changes they will make to support our green goals – all pledges will be entered into a prize drawer full of goodies from local businesses.
Keep your eyes peeled for updates from the week on Trust social media channels.
