Canon Medical Arena Developed By Canon Medical Systems

Strengthening the spirit of community in Sheffield by encouraging healthy, active lives.

Canon Medical Arena is the UK’s first carbon-neutral built community arena with multi-purpose sports facilities and integrated Medical Diagnostic Centre. The arena equips Sheffield with an affordable and accessible location for local people to participate in sports, engage in events, and improve the overall accessibility of health within the community.

The Medical Diagnostic Centre brings healthcare services close to the community and is operated by LivingCare, facilitating imaging referrals from professional sports clubs, health insurance companies, and offer the NHS and its patients additional capacity for scans and imaging procedures.

A sustainability Conscious World first

In line with Sheffield’s green objective of being a zero carbon city by 2050, and Canon Medical Systems UK Corporate Social Responsibility goals, Canon Medical Arena has been carbon-neutral built.

Living and working for the common good is at the heart of Canon Medical’s CSR initiatives. Canon Medical Arena exemplifies this entire philosophy of providing positive environmental and social value beyond the inherent purpose of this building.

Working in partnership with CO2balance, and pursuant to our commitment to support the  United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, Canon Medical has ensured that the carbon emitted during the build of the Canon Medical Arena was mitigated in the spirit of sustainability and environmental awareness. The delivery of the arena was in line with our goal of attaining partnership status for UN  SDG7: Affordable and Clean Energy, through VERRA’s Verified Carbon Standard Windfarm project in India.

In addition, all unavoidable carbon emissions from the use of Canon Medical’s diagnostic equipment incorporated within the Medical Diagnostic Centre will be compensated for their intended lifespan of use through UN Gold Standard projects in Uganda and Kenya. These projects also create social value (health benefits in the shape of illnesses and fatalities avoided as well economic benefits such as time saved to fetch water or wood). This is recognised by the UN in awarding Canon Medical Partnership Status for the following UNSDG’s: 6. Clean Water, 5. Gender Equality, 13. Climate Action and 3. Good Health and Wellbeing.
