The British Association of Stroke Physicians (BASP) is one of our newest members – having joined in 2020. In addition to its support for the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change, BASP has taken a number of practical steps to reduce its own impact on the environment:

  • Advocate
    BASP have declared the climate emergency, and regularly use their social media presence to highlight climate and environmental issues and their connection to health. The Association are also working with the UK Stroke Forum, which constitutes over twenty professional groups involved in stroke care to put the climate emergency high up the agenda of their annual conference – due to be held online this year.

  • Plan
    BASP are in the process of modifying their Articles of Association to include a Sustainability Lead, who will produce a plan and lead their efforts to decrease their climate impact.

  • Adapt
    The Association doesn’t have its own premises, but has switched to meat-free catering for all in-person meetings.

  • Travel
    To reduce the carbon emissions associated with its governance, the Association will reduce in person meetings from four per year to one, and will prohibit plane travel to reach them.

  • Finance
    BASP has no investments, in fossil fuel companies or otherwise.
