Join our online net zero carbon offsetting and nature-based solutions sharing and learning event on Thursday 16 November, from 2:30-4:30pm, and hear from industry experts and innovators working in this space.

Find out why investment in nature is beneficial to people’s health and wellbeing, homes and business, boosting local economies and how it can play a key role in achieving net zero targets.

We will also look at carbon offsetting and removal, what it is, how to ensure your business invests in credible schemes and why this can support your carbon reduction plans.

You’ll hear from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service, which recently completed a project to improve biodiversity and support carbon offsetting by planting over 2,000 trees in a memorial forest.

This session is suitable for those working for trusts, Integrated Care Boards, NHS Providers, NHS suppliers and innovators.

Sustainability is a key priority for the AHSN Network. Our network of 15 organisations across England act as a pillar in the development and uptake of technologies and best practices designed to reduce emissions in healthcare.
