About this event

This session will review the Nordic path toward sustainable health care delivery, including origins and drivers, innovation, and tracking progress. Content will be drawn from Nordic hospitals, government agencies, and industry.

The Nordic region has a long tradition of sustainability leadership in the health care sector. The content draws from the Nordic White Paper on Sustainable Health care, a regional roadmap for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Topics covered include: (i) Sustainability holistically embedded in hospital operations, which includes architecture, supply chains resource use, waste management, and governance; (ii) Innovative health care solutions developed by local companies, such as digital health solutions, sustainable medical technologies, lower-emission health care programs, and circular economy; (iii) Linkages between hospital and urban infrastructure through services such as district heating, district cooling, public transportation; and (iv) Culture, politics and legislations that have driven the regional sustainability agenda; and (v) Sustainability reporting frameworks and performance review.
