Greener Care Homes
We have dedicated this part of the DCHC website to our journey towards Net-Zero
You may know that Exeter has pledged to be net zero by 2030, Devon by 2050. Each business sector will, in turn, be encouraged to be actively greener in how they do business. It can seem over-whelming, particularly when we’ve had to deal with staffing shortages, pressures on finance on top of our day-to-day business of providing excellent care.
DCHC is going to be highlighting some simple tips and actions over the next 12 months to help. Greener can mean cost-savings and we all need these!
We are featuring a top tip in our monthly newsletter and will add to this page should you miss it. We're starting with some small and, hopefully, easy wins.
Watch this space, there will be more tips added!
