Alexandra is Head of Sustainable Procurement and Supply Chain at NHS England, where she leads the team responsible for delivering a net zero Carbon Footprint Plus for the NHS. In 2020, the NHS became the world’s first national health system to commit to become ‘carbon net zero’. Carbon Footprint Plus includes the NHS’ wider supply chain, aiming for an 80% reduction in emissions by 2036-2039 and Net Zero by 2045.
Following the release of the ‘Delivering a Net Zero Report’, Alexandra has led the development and implementation of the NHS’ world-leading programme. She was instrumental in the publication of the Net Zero Supplier Roadmap for the NHS and works across the diverse and complex NHS supply chain to deliver net zero carbon, drive social value and eradicate modern slavery across the supply chain.
Before joining NHSE, Alexandra led on the strategic and operational implementation of green plans for NHS organisations across the country, as well as some of the largest decarbonising infrastructure projects in the health sector, enabled by procurement frameworks.
Alexandra holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Policy from Edinburgh University, she graduated with honours from Boston College in the USA, and has previously led the award-winning sustainability programme at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
