Towards Net Zero – Transition to Net Zero in the Healthcare Sector – 28th of April

The health and care system in England is responsible for an estimated 4 – 5 per cent of the country’s carbon footprint – so has a major role to play in supporting the net zero target. The NHS has therefore committed to reaching net zero as soon as possible.

As part of BSI’s Net Zero Week, this webinar will explore several areas critical to carbon reduction in healthcare. Presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion and Q&A.

The role of data and cyber-physical systems in achieving net zero – 28th of April

This webinar explores the vital role that accurate, trustworthy and shared data plays in informing sustainability-related decisions, and how connecting digital technologies with physical infrastructure (sometimes called cyber-physical systems, or cyber-physical infrastructure) can translate this into reduced CO2 emissions.
