Green Impact for Health

Our team at Benfield are increasingly concerned about the impact of climate change on human health, and are therefore delighted to be signed up to the Green Impact for Health Toolkit. We are actively taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint. The climate emergency is also a health emergency, and health care in the UK contributes 5.4% of the UK’s carbon emissions. Fortunately most of the solutions for the planet also make our health better – for example engaging in active travel and exercise in nature, avoiding smoking, reducing pollution etc all enhance our health and reduce our need for medications, with further benefits to the NHS, your health and the carbon footprint of healthcare.
