Commitment to Sustainability

Cleveland Clinic London is committed to growing responsibly. We aim to model sustainable practices in healthcare and the communities in which we operate. We continue to take steps to improve our impact on the environment.

At Cleveland Clinic London, our Sustainability and Community Committee works to ensure that organisational activities are directed towards our fundamental goal of reducing the health system’s environmental footprint. We use infrastructure upgrades and engage stakeholders to participate in these efforts.

Cleveland Clinic London: Steps Towards Sustainability

We continue to improve sustainability through:

  • Strategic purchasing.
  • Construction.
  • Efficiency.
  • Recycling.

We’re dedicated to managing the impacts of our caregivers, office, hospital and medical outpatient centre buildings in terms of:

  • Waste.
  • Energy.
  • Water.
  • Food.
  • Transportation.
  • Chemicals.
  • Procurement.
  • Climate.
  • Culture.

Energy-Efficient Solutions

Our London hospital building will produce some of its own heat and power through a Combined Heat and Power plant (CHP) to significantly reduce carbon emissions from air and water heating. This highly energy-efficient solution is unusual in a building with a retained façade.

Other measures we’ve taken to reduce our operating emissions:

  • Insulation: Green Grade A and A+ rated insulation products insulate the entire hospital building, exceeding Building Regulations performance criteria. This step will lessen energy demand from heating the building and reduce operating costs. Insulation also improves efficiency throughout the entire building.
  • Lighting: All internal spaces have low energy demand lighting, such as LED luminaries and motion sensors. This lighting turns off when spaces aren’t in use or when installed in nontreatment areas.

The hospital construction was BREEAM accredited (with 98% of the original building’s materials recycled). We’re working towards the British Standards Institute ISO 14001 environmental management certification.
