The targets commit Manchester to limit its CO2 emissions to 15 million tonnes during the period 2018-2100, our ‘carbon budget’ (recognising that the city currently emits 2 million tonnes per year); rapidly reduce CO2 emissions, by an average of at least 13% year-on-year and; and become a zero carbon city by 2038 at the latest.

Naomi Makin from the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust who

described the actions and initiates delivered and planned for their respective sites to

engage with staff around the issue of climate change.

He stated that action was needed to address the risks to Manchester residents from the changing climate, such as extreme heat; heavy rainfall and potential flooding and other local risks due to climate change.

 

Dr Murugesan Raja informed the Board that MHCC continued to focus on respiratory disease as one of the key long term conditions to address poor health outcomes in Manchester.      He advised that it was recognised that in order to address respiratory inequalities a system wide approach to change was required. He said that MHCC were therefore working in partnership with primary care, community care, secondary care, patient engagement and RightCare to address this.
