The NHS has committed to lowering the inhaler carbon footprint.
This resource provides you with practical steps towards lowering the inhaler carbon footprint in addition to suggested switches which are cost saving or cost neutral.
Attachment 1 provides a comparison of inhalers by device type, indications and age range, indicative carbon footprint and costs. The data will be of assistance when considering lower carbon footprint inhaler alternatives to pMDIs.
An impact tool will be available soon which will allow users to view the impact of any inhaler switches they are considering in terms of cost and carbon footprint.
