What is EcoHealth?
EcoHealth is the premier mark of distinction for sustainability performance within the NHS
EcoHealth is a third party verification scheme for the Sustainable Development Management Plans (SDMPs), which NHS organisations are required to produce as part of the NHS standard contract (service condition 18). Loreus has drawn upon their work with various NHS organisations and the guidance from the SDU to create the EcoHealth certification scheme. EcoHealth is comprised of three levels, each designed to guide the organisation towards creating and implementing a robust SDMP to achieve real sustainability improvements.
The audit criteria for the scheme are available online for organisations to view before joining. Upon joining the EcoHealth scheme, NHS organisations will be able to submit the evidence for the Bronze and Silver phases online, while achievement of the Gold award will involve a site visit from the Loreus audit team.
The phases of the EcoHealth scheme are:
Level 1: The review stage and getting started.
Level 2: Creating the finalised SDMP.
Level 3: Embedding the SDMP & achieving objectives.
Upon completion of the criteria at each level, your organisation will receive an EcoHealth certificate, EcoHealth badge and a selection of logos to promote your achievement.
In addition to the EcoHealth scheme, Loreus can also offer consultancy support for those organisations who do not yet have an SDMP in place. Please contact us directly for more information and to discuss your requirements.
