Major decarbonisation project for South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust

We’re delighted to have supported South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust on the implementation of an energy infrastructure and energy infrastructure maintenance contract called off under the Carbon and Energy Fund framework. This project will reduce Warwick Hospital’s carbon footprint at the site delivering an estimated saving of 11,313 Tonnes of CO2e. The project will support the Trust to secure its ambition of becoming net zero carbon by 2040.

The Mills & Reeve team supporting the Foundation Trust included Ben Bull, senior associate, and Rhian Vandrill, commercial health partner.

Ben commented: “We are pleased to have supported the Trust on such an important project for the ongoing sustainability of Warwick Hospital and to further help it to reach the long-term aim of net zero carbon by 2040. Projects such as this, which was procured and facilitated using the Carbon and Energy Fund, go someway to reaching the ambitious targets set by NHS and its overarching aim to become the world’s first net zero health service”.   

Cristina Calleja, Sustainability Manager at South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust said: "We are very excited to be developing our site with a sustainable future in mind. This project will form the foundations of a new and long term relationship with our subcontractor, and we are grateful for the support Mills & Reeve provided whilst navigating the agreement and signing of legal documents".

Sophie Gilkes, Chief Strategy Officer at South Warwickshire University NHS Foundation Trust  added:“I am delighted we are working with FP Hurley on reducing the Trust’s environmental impact. As an organisation we have made a commitment to being a leader in sustainability and this project is a significant step towards us becoming net zero carbon by 2040. We recognise the impact environmental factors have on the health and wellbeing of our populations, so prioritising this work will support a reduction in preventable illness in the long term”.
