An environmentally conscientious hospital

Örebro University Hospital is an environmentally conscientious hospital. We continuously carry out environmental improvements to achieve a sustainable development. Environmental aspects are part of our daily activities with clearly identifiable goals within the areas of procurement, energy, transport, waste, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals.

Örebro University Hospital requests and purchases environmentally safe and ecologically sound products whenever possible.

Örebro University Hospital has the lowest energy consumption of all of the Swedish university hospitals. The consumption has an environmentally  good composition, with less use of fuel oil.

Örebro University Hospital contributes as little as possible to contamination of the environment with persistent, toxic, or bioaccumulative pharmaceutical waste. We are in the process of reducing our use of chemical products that pose a risk for the environment and health.
