Results

After the implementation of all planned improvements, these are the results which Rio Hortega Hospital has achieved:

Energy The consumption of electricity has been reduced by 756,116 kWh, with a saving of 42%, which is 4.9% compared to the global electricity consumption of HURH

The consumption of thermal energy has been reduced by 736,553 kWh, with a saving of 4%, which is 3% compared to the global thermal consumption of the HURH.

Water In year 2017, the water consumption has been 320 m3/day, which represents a saving of 28% compared to the initial scenario of the project.

23% of the total water consumption in the HURH is reused.

Waste The number of segregated residues has been increased from 22 to 35: Group I (19 types), Group II (1), Group III (2) and group IV (13).

The landfill disposal of 274 tons of Group I waste has been avoided, representing a reduction of 43%.

The reduction of energy consumption has generated a total saving of 112,147 € / year

The reduction of water consumption has generated a total saving of 46.030 € / year

The segregation of new types of waste has generated a potential savings of 125,060 €/ year

Footprint The energy saving has avoided the emission to the environment of 455 t CO2 eq.

The greenhouse gas emissions of HURH have been reduced by 17%.

The water footprint has been reduced by 29% (blueprint).

Experts A Manual of Good Practices has been published, available in Spanish and English version, which includes 30 actions that can be implemented in a hospital, aimed at environmental sustainability and adaptation to mitigate Climate Change in hospitals.

A free on-line e-Learning tool, available in Spanish and English version, has been developed, which provides the most appropriate solutions to improve environmental sustainability in hospitals, through simple self-assessment questionnaires.

The Layman Report has been published, available in Spanish and English version, which includes the main actions in the framework of the Project and all the results obtained.
