Specialist healthcare infrastructure experts, Archus, have announced a new strategic partnership with sustainability consultancy, Square Gain, as part of a joint commitment to support the ambitions for the achievement of a net zero NHS by 2040.

The exclusive partnership builds on several projects the two companies are already delivering together as part of the move towards a greener NHS, including commissions with NHS Wales, North West London Integrated Care Board, and the authoring of technical guidance for the Net Zero Carbon Standard for Capital Projects of £15m-plus on behalf of NHSE&I.

Alongside expert advice in the development of zero-carbon and green buildings, the partnership will also offer NHS clients support in both strategy and implementation across the full spectrum of sustainability-related services, including environmental management systems, supply chain risk management, sustainable finance, ESG, corporate responsibility, and sustainable facilities management.

Commenting on the partnership, Archus executive director, Chris Turner, said: “Archus is committed to supporting our clients in the delivery of a greener NHS.

“We are delighted to be working with Square Gain to expand our portfolio of services in the creation of sustainable infrastructure and healthcare to help realise the vision of a net zero health service by 2040.”

Greg Chant Hall, director and lead advisor at Square Gain, added: “The ambitious goals set by NHS leaders for sustainability are an imperative for the future health of our planet and population.
