hospital sustainability

The new symbiosis between hospitals, climate change and sustainability

Hospitals are an important part of the healthcare industry and have a significant impact on the environment and climate change.

The bad news is that they are an intrinsic part of it. And the good news is that more and more hospitals are committing to becoming more sustainable and reducing their carbon footprint.

By reducing energy consumption, implementing sustainable strategies and raising awareness among staff and patients, hospitals can contribute to a more sustainable and healthier future for all.

The SDGs and the health sector: challenges and opportunities

A natural consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic has been that the focus of attention has turned to the health sector, which has been more prominent than ever in recent times. The relevance of SDG 3 on health and wellbeing, which we will discuss in depth below, means that the health sector is in a time of vigilance, but also of opportunities linked to digitalisation, innovation and new technologies.

In short, in this post we want to delve into the relationship between the SDGs and the health sector, learning first-hand what they are and to what extent they influence the current and future health sector landscape.
