Green Hospital: Carbon neutral thanks to sustainable technology

In light of climate change, the healthcare industry is putting increasing emphasis on sustainability besides digitization and labour shortages. In the future, hospital facilities will be judged by their carbon footprint and their contribution to climate neutrality.

Action to be taken are:

➡️ As a first step, hospitals should calculate their carbon footprint to track all direct and indirect emissions with Tools that can calculate the carbon footprint, business process improvements, and hardware optimization.

➡️ A “Green Hospital” is also a smart facility. That means processes and procedures are efficient, ideally save time and reduce work for the hospital staff. This subsequently lowers stress and creates a more relaxed hospital environment and efficient usage of resources.

➡️ Digital technologies provide significant opportunities to help reduce emissions e.g.

➡️️ Digital controlled recycling systems

➡️ Medical information systems / software

➡️ IT infrastructure / computer hardware

➡️ ️Administrative information systems / software

Unfortunately, outside of panel discussions, decarbonization is not yet an industry priority. 

Decarbonization of healthcare and hospitals is a new and complex issue that necessitates skills and expertise from many different areas.
