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