Sustainability Assessment Tool

The new Sustainability Assessment Tool (SAT) is being developed in order to replace the Good Corporate Citizen Self-Assessment tool which has previously been widely used across the NHS. The purpose of the new tool is to support NHS Scotland Health Boards in:

  • Assessing the Boards' yearly progress on sustainability against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Reporting on the progress of sustainability and identifying areas that need improvement
  • Demonstrating the Boards' contribution to sustainable development

The assessment tool has been split into a number of categories that are to be assessed, these are:

  • Active Travel
  • Awareness
  • Capital Projects
  • Governance and Policy
  • Procurement and Supply Chain
  • Sustainable Care
  • Waste 
  • Welfare
  • Working with Communities

Each of the above areas will be assessed and report on their sustainability actions on an annual basis which will be submitted for assessment every year to provide NHS GG&C with a score to track it’s progress against meeting the UN Sustainable Development GoalsWe have to continue to improve in the areas above to increase our score in sustainable development.
