Recently Barts Health NHS Trust in partnership with UK based supply chain sustainability software provider trakeo™ (www.trakeo.com) began a project to develop the trakeo™ Sustainability Resource Planning tool to map the sustainability characteristics from the trust’s procurement supply chain.
This project will allow the trust to reduce the amount of CO2 emitted from the products they procure and will reduce the risk that unsustainable impacts are occurring in the production of those products wherever that may be around the world. The culmination of this ambitious project will see the development of a highly specialised tool for use in the healthcare sector and tailored for NHS trusts in the UK.
The long term goal of the project is for the system to deliver benefits to NHS trusts nationwide and for this reason the project partners are seeking input from sustainability and procurement professionals in the UK healthcare sector.
