NetZero: Theatre Departments - Implementation of the Green Theatre Checklist

22nd November 2023


The Royal Surgical Colleges launched the Green Theatre Checklist in November 2022 as part of an intercollegiate approach to improve surgical sustainability. On its one year anniversary we discuss its successes, its pitfalls and how you can get involved.


This Intercollegiate webinar, run in partnership with RCSEng, is part of a series of NetZero webinars on sustainable surgery. Following release of the Green Theatre Checklist we plan to highlight its successful implementation in trusts, look at ways in which it can be adapted for use, and engage members and fellows in ways they can make sustainable changes to their day to day practice.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the webinar participants will understand more about sustainability, be able to make a difference from tomorrow, and have the tools to lead significant change in their departments.
