Our sustainability pledge

The All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG) and the All Wales Therapeutics and Toxicology Centre (AWTTC) pledge to:

  • support measures to address the climate change emergency
  • contribute to achieving the NHS’s goal to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2030
  • consider the environmental impact of medicines
  • consider the impact of our work on people and future generations, and on their health and wellbeing
  • involve patients and the public in our work, ensuring that our work is inclusive and fully reflects the diversity of Wales; and
  • take action to reduce health inequalities in relation to access, use and outcomes from medicines
