Environmental sustainability is a new requirement place upon social care providers by the Single Assessment Framework. The CQC say that this quality statement will not be reviewed at the first assessment under the new framework. Nevertheless, social care provider must embrace environmental sustainability and embed it into their governance systems now. This is also a requirement under many local authority contracts in the social value section of the service specification. Environmental sustainability is more than recycling waste although that is a vital element. It requires a review of all of the service processes to lessen the impact on the environment and taking steps to reduce this.

This course will explore the Single Assessment Framework – quality statement for the WELL LED key question – Environmental sustainability. We will look at the background to this quality statement. We will also look how care providers can clearly evidence that they have embedded environmental sustainability into their everyday practice and governance processes.
