Are you a supplier bidding for, or planning to bid for NHS contracts?

From April 2023, for all new contracts above £5 million per annum, the NHS will require suppliers to publish a carbon reduction plan (CRP) for their UK scope 1 and 2 emissions and a subset of scope 3 emissions as a minimum (aligning with PPN 06/21).

From April 2024, the NHS will proportionately extend the Carbon Reduction Plan requirements to cover all procurements.

  • To ensure the CRP requirements are extended in a proportionate and relevant manner to all procurements from 1 April 2024, the policy will be applied in a two-tiered approach. A CRP requirement will be extended to a wider set of procurements and a Net Zero Commitment (NZC) will be required for lower value procurements.
  • The Net Zero Commitment requirements include selected key requirements from the CRP, therefore a CRP-compliant supplier is also compliant with the NHS Net Zero Commitment requirements.
  • A supplier who has already published a compliant CRP is ready to meet the April 2024 milestone requirements by keeping their CRP up to date.

Updated guidance has been published on the application of CRPs and NZCs on the NHS England website.

Join one of our CRP and NZC webinars for suppliers to learn what CRPs and NZCs are, how your CRP/NZC will be requested within the procurement process, what support is available to help you create your CRP/NZC and there will be plenty of time to answer your questions.

  • Please note the Net Zero and Sustainable Procurement Team will utilise the supplier webinar as the primary space to answer any questions you may have.
