Regent's Park Healthcare (RPH) has been providing socially conscious and responsible healthcare in the UK for more than 20 years.
At RPH, we believe that the most significant economic transformation in history is well underway. Our economic framework is unsustainable, because it relies heavily on exploiting the environment in ways that also damage it. While nature supports over half of all economic activity, the fact that this contribution is rarely understood means that we are inadvertently destroying the value our planet enables us to create.
Our current economic model is no longer fit to organise economic activity around 8 billion people. For instance, we currently extract nearly 100 billion tonnes of raw materials from the environment each year to produce goods that, most of the time, aren’t in use. The production and disposal of those goods generates approximately 70 billion tonnes of waste annually, destroying our most productive economic asset – nature – in the process. The depletion, disruption, and destruction of nature that is inherent to our economic model has now led us to exceed many manageable limits, risking the collapse of natural systems and, in turn, economies.
Now that human impact has become the primary driving force of environmental change, many business models that worked in the past are no longer suitable for the future. Today, our economy relies extensively on extractive industries which are depleting and degrading the very natural capital upon which they depend. This has to change. We must shift towards a nature-positive economy that closes the loop on our ecological footprint, values the natural resources we rely on, and minimises our adverse impact on the natural capital that sustains our society and economy.
Making a positive impact with everything we do.
We believe sustainability is about making a positive impact with everything we do, from how we act as a corporate to the investments we make in our various healthcare projects.
We all have the power to help create a sustainable and more prosperous world for all through our role in the healthcare system by allocating capital to areas that deliver both social and investment value.
The way we direct capital not only shapes the financial returns we may achieve, but also the type of impact we have on the world.
Sustainable companies can have a positive impact on society and the environment. What’s more, their business models are more resilient and better placed to support long-term growth. At RPH, we believe sustainable investing makes both investment and social sense.
Focused on driving progress and improving futures.
The impact we have on society and the environment is at the centre of our approach to corporate responsibility. We focus on driving progress and improving futures by acting in the most responsible way possible towards society and the environment at all times.
Regent's Park is committed to a decarbonisation agenda.
We aim to achieve a zero carbon footprint by 2035 with a 80% reduction in our footprint by 2027.
United Nations Global Compact
Since Feb 2023, RPH has been committed to the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
The UN Global Compact asks companies to align their operations and strategies to ten universally accepted principles. These principles represent the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were set up to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.
Four fundamental responsibilities
The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact relate to four key areas which we have aligned our corporate responsibility strategies and operations to. In addition to anti-corruption and human rights, our aim is to help end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.
We endeavour to improve the futures of those around us – whether it’s embracing our own people, or creating a lasting positive impact in our society.
Regent's Park is strongly opposed to slavery and human trafficking. We will not support or conduct business with any organisation involved in such activities.
Minimising our environmental impact by committing to objectives and targets such as reducing our global carbon footprint.
Regent's Park is fully committed to preventing financial crime, as well as promoting companies that prioritise good ESG practices.
