In October 2020, NHS England adopted a multi-year plan to become the world’s first carbon net zero national health system. This framework agreement aims to provide a compliant route to market for Contracting Authorities for a safe, sustainable, and efficient waste management service. It is split into 6 Lots covering the main waste services contracted by the NHS and wider public sector bodies.

Appointed suppliers will be expected to assist Participating Authorities to adopt the Waste Hierarchy (set out in the revised EU Waste Framework Directive) and Environment Agency requirements by identifying opportunities and measures where possible to prevent waste and apply the Waste Hierarchy supporting the best outcomes for the environment - prevent, preparing for reuse, recycling, recovery, and disposal and avoiding landfill.

It is expected that suppliers appointed to this framework will work with Participating Authorities to adopt a sustainable approach to Waste Management and focus on key areas including provision of data, workforce support training, managing services compliantly, supporting the development of new technology, and focusing on the delivery of sustainable services.
