Nordic Guide and Cooperation on the Green Procurement of Hospital Textiles
The NCSH is collaborating with PlanMiljø in a new project which focuses on the green procurement of hospital textiles. The aim of the project is to encourage and assist hospitals and regional authorities in the Nordic region in moving towards a more sustainable procurement of healthcare textiles. This will be achieved in 5 steps.
A country specific fact sheet will be developed for the Nordic countries. This will include current status, obstacles and potential for healthcare textiles procurement. The consortium will also establish and facilitate a network of stakeholders relevant to the procurement of textiles in the healthcare sector. The stakeholders will also be brought together in different workshops to discuss and exchange initiatives as well as establish voluntary agreements. A strategy will then be developed and carried out for the guide’s dissemination amongst Nordic healthcare procurers.
A guide on green procurement of hospital textiles has been developed in close cooporation with the network. The guide was released during 2017 and is available in English. Greener textiles in hospitals - guide to green procurement in the healthcare sector can be downloaded here >>
