What strategies can hospitals adopt to reduce their impact on the local and global environment? How might they reduce the carbon footprint of vehicles transporting patients, visitors and goods? This album visits three hospitals which have adopted green approaches to energy efficiency, by cutting electricity consumption, reducing traffic volume, and even generating their own renewable energy. This material forms part of The Open University course T206 Energy for a sustainable future.
