During the assessment process NHS Blood and Transplant was praised for having good processes in place to collect and substantiate carbon data. This enables efficient energy management. They worked with Carbon Saver Ltd to calculate their carbon footprint, measure the progress of their carbon management strategies, and examine their areas of risk. NHS Blood and Transplant have been investing in projects to reduce their emissions and upgrade buildings. Some of the projects implemented include; condensing boilers, plate heat exchangers, thermal insulation, BMS upgrades and energy efficient lighting.

In order to achieve the Carbon Saver Standard, organisations must show an accurate footprint measurement of all required emission sources. They need to demonstrate an absolute reduction of their footprint or an equivalent relative efficiency improvement. They also need to evidence good carbon management including carbon accounting, reduction, targets and governance. The Carbon Saver Standard is an early action metric for the Government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment. NHS Blood and Transplant will have an improved position on the CRC Performance League Table as a result of having the Carbon Saver Gold Standard.
