Making transplantation green

About the working group

The NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) Working Group on Environmental Sustainability in Transplantation was created by Prof. Derek Manas (Medical Director for Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation) with Dr Matt Welberry Smith (Consultant Transplant Physician, Leeds) and Mr John Callahan (Consultant Transplant Surgeon, Oxford and Coventry) as co-chairs.

The group initially aimed to provide the organ transplantation community with a straightforward tool for Transplant Units to use to move to more environmentally sustainable practise, resulting in this document.

The group is now in the process of more detailed examination of various parts of the transplant pathway, the results of which will be made available widely once completed.
