Sustainable Development SIG

The Sustainable Development Special Interest Group (SIG) has been established to drive forward strategic action to embed the principles of sustainable development into all FPH does and stands for, in order to create a healthy, equitable and sustainable future.

The SIG will work to inform and develop the FPH's approach to sustainable development and climate change through developing, promoting and advocating for:

  • Whole systems approach to health and care services
  • Partnerships with alliances that achieve positive, sustainable development
  • Good health through engagement with the natural environment
  • Management pro-actives that take account of the limits of the Earth's resources and that reduce our impact
