Center For Green Healthcare

Green Healthcare supports the healthcare sector in reducing its carbon footprint, building resilient hospitals, and mobilizing health care’s influence to advance the transition to a sustainable future.

Scope of Niko Green Health services:

  • Sustainable Development Strategy for Healthcare - We support County Governments in developing the vision for a sustainable healthcare system by reducing carbon emissions, protecting natural resources, preparing communities for extreme weather events and promoting healthy lifestyles and environments.
  • Sustainable Healthcare Research - Our sustainable healthcare research provides evidence of best practices, assessment of current situation and of the resources that can be mobilized to address the gaps, to inform policy, program design and implementation of climate-smart healthcare initiatives. This includes Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring and management, Health Impact Assessments (HIA), and Safety Risk Assessments (SRA)s.
  • Sustainable Healthcare Trainings - Our Sustainable healthcare education program is aimed at educating the public and healthcare professionals about the health effects of climate change, and how climate change policy and consumption choices influence the health of our communities.
  • Green healthcare infrastructure and technologies - We are committed to transforming healthcare settings into healing environments that improve outcomes through the creative use of evidence-based sustainable design, procurement of sustainable products, and sustainable management of wastes.
