The Green Team competition is a great way of picking up new skills and learning how to make bigger reductions in your carbon footprint… SusQI is a great way of team building and putting a spring in the step of the people we work with and give treatment to”.

The Green Team Competition offers both bigger picture understanding and guides practical changes in sustainable healthcare – transforming knowledge into action.

As a healthcare worker, you can directly influence, implement and measure changes in your daily practice, showing tangible benefits to net zero carbon, cost and care.

 

As an organisation, you can empower your staff with the knowledge and skills needed to contribute to sustainable models of care, whilst receiving an impressive return on investment.

How it works

The Green Team Competition invites six teams from within your healthcare delivery organisation to engage in our mentoring programme and begin their journey toward improving Sustainability in Quality Improvement, 'SusQI'through a variety of projects.  

Your teams will be led by experienced experts in healthcare, education and sustainability to increase understanding, implement positive change, and introduce a series of closely mentored practical projects that will generate high impact outcomes. 

All outcomes will be tracked and evidenced to document the positive impact on the environment, patient care and organisational costs, and each team will present their project in a ceremony designed to celebrate everyone's achievements.
