Greener Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent

Pin It

Climate change poses a major threat to our health as well as our planet. The environment is changing, that change is accelerating, and this has direct and immediate consequences for our local population.


Partners in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are working together to tackle climate change in a joined-up way, reduce the impact on public health and the environment and cut carbon emissions.

We can all do our bit to make Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent greener and reduce our impact on the environment by thinking differently about how we live our everyday lives.

Small changes can make a big difference, like changing how we travel, what we buy and how we dispose of our waste. Together, we can all play a significant role in reducing our carbon footprint, limiting our impact on the environment, and making a significant difference to local people’s health.

Visit the Staffordshire County Council website to find out about the ‘Doing our bit to make Staffordshire Sustainable' campaign.

Visit the Stoke-on-Trent Council website for information about the sustainability work in progress.

On Thursday 26 May 2022 we are hosting a virtual ICS Green Plan Launch Event for local health and care workers, the voluntary sector and partners. To find out more and to book a free place click here.

Greener NHS

From NHS staff to patients and their families, people are at the heart of the NHS. When we look after our environment, we look after them. Taking action to reduce harmful carbon emissions will save lives and improve health, now and for future generations.

The ‘Greener NHS Programme’ aims to coordinate NHS staff, hospitals, and partners to support sustainability through eliminating the use of single-use plastics, reducing waste and making the NHS carbon net zero by 2040.

NHS organisations in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent are working together at pace to respond to climate changes and to develop local Green Plans to turn plans into action.

To find out more information and how to get involved visit the Greener NHS website.
