Join the movement

By making changes to everyday actions, together we can make a positive difference to the environment, to our health and to the wellbeing of our communities.

We know climate change poses a major threat to everyone’s future. For us to lead the way in responding to the climate crisis, and to meet our vitally important goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2038, we’re committing to making fundamental changes to the way we work, through increased investment, mitigation, and culture change throughout our health and care system.

At West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, we’re all hands in for a better future.

How you can help

Things like turning off equipment and lights when they’re not in use, opting for meat free Mondays, or changing the way you get to work might seem like a drop in the ocean but by making changes to everyday actions together we can make a positive difference to the environment, to our health, and to the wellbeing of our communities.
