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