We have committed to reduce these emissions by at least 28% by 2020 (compared to 2013). 2 Scope This policy relates to energy used to heat and power buildings used for Trust activities. It applies to all Trust employees, honorary contract staff, contractors, partners, patients and visitors who influence and/or directly impact energy use. 3 Aim This policy sets out the Trust s commitment to embed energy management best practice throughout the organisation to: minimise energy consumption reduce associated energy costs, and meet our carbon reduction target to reduce the negative environmental impact of our operations 4 Duties (Roles and responsibilities) 4.1 The Executive Team is accountable to the Trust Board for ensuring Trustwide adoption of this policy. 4.2 The Management Group is responsible for guiding the implementation of the Management Commitments set out in this policy and reporting progress to the Sustainable Healthcare Committee and onwards to Trust Board (see Appendix 1 for full governance structure). 4.3 The Manager is responsible for leading the coordination and implementation of the Management Commitments set out in this policy.

2 4.4 Directorate managers, heads of service and other managers are responsible for collaborating with representatives from the Management Group to support the implementation of energy management best practice in their area(s). 4.5 All building users are responsible for considering how their behaviours impact on energy use, seeking further guidance from the Manager and representatives from the Management Group as required. 5 Definitions 5.1 Refers to all fossil fuel (e.g. natural gas) and renewable (e.g. solar) sources used to generate heat and power. 6 Management Commitments The Trust is committed to embedding energy management best practice throughout its operations to continually improve its energy performance to reduce associated costs and carbon emissions. This will be achieved by focussing on six key areas: 6.1 Procurement & Financial Management Ensuring the Trust procures energy and manages energy contracts to deliver best value, underpinned by robust financial processes. 6.2 Compliance Maintaining a clear understanding of the Trust s legal obligations and mandatory reporting requirements in respect of energy and carbon emissions, and ensuring these obligations are being managed effectively. 6.3 Information & Data Improving the collection and ongoing monitoring of energy data (and associated information) to identify energy saving opportunities, set suitable targets and report performance. 6.4 Reducing Demand Eliminating wasteful energy practices and increasing energy efficiency across the Trust. This will include using more efficient technologies in building refurbishments and developments, and incorporating energy efficiency considerations in the procurement of products and services. 6.5 Renewables & Resilience Assessing opportunities to integrate renewable energy supplies and protect our energy-dependent services. 6.6 Trust Culture Engaging stakeholders who influence energy use with initiatives to promote energy best practice, providing training as appropriate and regularly communicating energy performance.

Training and guidance is available on request from the Manager by ing 8 Equality and diversity The Trust is committed to ensuring that, as far as is reasonably practicable the way we provide services to the public and the way we treat our staff reflects their individual needs and does not unlawfully discriminate against individuals or groups. This policy has been assessed accordingly and as part of its aim to improve the building user environment, consideration in relation to disability, age and pregnancy will be important for aspects of its implementation. For example, considering those who are less able to regulate their body temperature when reviewing heating services. 9 Monitoring compliance Process Monitoring and audit Method By Committees Frequency Assessment of progress towards Trust energy management commitments as outlined in this Policy and the Strategy Annual Report Manager Management Group Sustainable Healthcare Committee Annual Monitoring and development of energy management projects to achieve commitments as outlined in this Policy and the Strategy EMG agendas, minutes, action plans and monitoring documents Manager Management Group Quarterly 10 Consultation and review This policy has been reviewed in consultation with the Trust s Management Group and the Sustainable Healthcare Committee. 11 Implementation (including raising awareness) This policy will be implemented and promoted by the Manager and wider Management Group, with progress reviewed by the Sustainable Healthcare Committee.
