The Scottish Government's aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50 per cent by 2050 and the interim target of a 42 per cent reduction by 2020.  The specific targets for NHS Scotland are to reduce CO2 emissions for oil, gas, butane and propane usage annually by 3% to 2014/15 and to continue to reduce energy consumption annually by 1% to 2014/15.

Between 2009/10 and 2011/12, NHS Scotland secured a 2.6% reduction in CO2 emissions and a 2.1% reduction in energy consumption. The revised Policy on Sustainable Development for NHS Scotland 2012 addresses six key areas: transport, procurement, facilities management, workforce, community engagement and buildings.  The policy asks for continuous improvement, sets mandatory requirements and outlines the framework for governance, planning, monitoring and reporting. 

Along with the design for more sustainable new buildings for healthcare, sustainable refurbishment of existing buildings will play a significant role in reducing energy use in buildings and, ultimately, in making savings that will allow higher investment in care for patients.

Interventions on existing healthcare buildings always present a bigger challenge than the interventions on other buildings as they should not disrupt or reduce the capacity and ability to provide a continuous level of service to the patients.

The conference will explore how this can be achieved by informing on the context, research outcomes and case studies from Scotland and England.

The conference is of interest to the NHS Scotland Boards, managers of healthcare estates, architects, building services designers, manufacturers of building materials and components, and contractors.
