    TEM launched the Nordic Center for Sustainable Healthcare as a platform to structure and develop the knowledge base and work experience built up over a decade.

    Our network creates value and growth opportunities for our partners and members

    The Nordic countries have a solid knowledge base and advanced technologies with improved environmental performance and sustainability in healthcare. In most areas within sustainable healthcare the Nordics are among the best globally and in many cases the best. This knowledge and solutions can be transferred to other parts of the world.

    Sustainable Healthcare is horizontal, not vertical

    Sustainable Healthcare is cross-sectoral and not assigned to specific industry sectors. On the other hand a certain percentage of companies in almost all industrial sectors have sustainable healthcare solutions as the model below is showing.
