Encouraging overall assessment

HUG was the first European university hospital to carry out an environmental assessment in 2009. Since then, it periodically repeats this operation that allows it to measure the impact of its activities on the environment, identify the main polluting and energy-consuming sources and undertake the actions required to reduce them.

Protecting the planet and its resources

In 2009, the HUG were the first European university hospitals to perform an LCA. This approach, which they have since continued, allows the institution to measure the impact of its activities on the environment, identify key sources of pollution and energy consumption, and initiate the necessary actions for their reduction.
