Is your business in the health sector?

Are you an innovator that needs to know more about sustainability?

If so, this event offers the ideal opportunity to learn more.

Climate change is the defining issue of our time, and real change cannot happen without new innovations and innovative businesses. This event aims to educate innovators on the growing importance of the climate crisis, and what they need to know over the coming years. It will look at how climate change is impacting the NHS, how the NHS is impacting our climate, and breakdown the NHS’s approach to sustainability and sustainable procurement over the next decade. Additionally, a variety of resources will be provided to support innovators on their sustainability journey.

The event will be hosted at the Surrey Heartlands Health Tech Accelerator, an innovation and accelerator partnership which brings together clinicians, academics and tech companies to solve health and social care challenges.
