Green Procurement of Hospital Textiles – Nordic Guide and Cooperation
NCSH collaborated with PlanMiljø in a project which focused on the green procurement of hospital textiles. The aim of the project was to encourage and assist hospitals and regional authorities in the Nordic region in moving towards a more sustainable procurement of healthcare textiles.
A country specific fact sheet was developed for the Nordic countries. This included current status, obstacles and potential for healthcare textiles procurement. The consortium also established and facilitated a network of stakeholders relevant to the procurement of textiles in the healthcare sector. The stakeholders were brought together through various workshops to discuss and exchange initiatives as well as establish voluntary agreements. A strategy was then 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.
