h-trak UK completes NHS Evergreen Sustainable Supplier Assessment

h-trak UK is pleased to have completed the NHS Evergreen Sustainable Supplier Assessment. The Assessment is a self-assessment and reporting tool and resulted in us receiving a Level 2: Comprehensive net zero targets and reporting for carbon emissions. The information reported through Evergreen is supporting us to understand our alignment with NHS sustainability priorities and identify those areas in which we need to accelerate progress.

The Evergreen Assessment is one of several NHS initiatives designed to support its net zero and wider sustainability objectives. We are delighted to be supporting the NHS to achieve their net zero and sustainability ambitions, including those set out in the NHS Net Zero Supplier Roadmap.

On working towards net zero, Nick Roots, Business Development Manager for h-trak UK, emphasised that “being a software company means that our emissions are naturally lower [than physical products], however that isn’t a reason to delay taking action towards net zero. We understand the importance of changing habits and having those conversations to reduce emissions rather than relying on offsetting, and in order to make meaningful, lasting changes the consideration has to be towards sustainable reduction methods that can be embedded within the day-to-day working.”

“Our Carbon Reduction Plan highlights our focus areas and we’ve discussed the most effective current methods to reduce our emissions across all 3 scopes, with some great input from the UK team as to how we can achieve this.”

We are looking forward to discussing our greener plans – as well as important focus points from our customers – at our upcoming User Group next month.
