About Us

NuGreen is a research-led, sustainability consultancy that was born from the desire to reduce the amount of medical waste and create a circular healthcare system.

Our passion is to help you measure and reduce the areas that are complex and difficult to manage. We specialise in supporting scope 3 emission reductions. We are building sustainable frameworks throughout the UK that are designed to maximise the use of products and materials and improve waste segregation and management within the healthcare sector.

NuGreen started life as a research project looking into reducing waste in the NHS. This broad topic led us to delve into the use of plastics and whether or not the alternatives were viable within healthcare. We discovered that, whilst replacing plastics would reduce the amount of plastic waste, it would bring to light a new set of environmental problems including an increase in CO2 and a costly disposal process.

Overall waste seemed to be an area that was relatively untouched and after learning about the circular economy an idea formed – Can we recover resources from medical waste in a more efficient way to create something new whilst reducing emissions and creating a sustainable culture within healthcare?

The long term answer to this question is a resounding yes.

We can recover resources from medical waste in an efficient way.

They can be used to create something new.

We can develop a sustainable future within healthcare.

And we will
