DAPHNE: Decarbonising Healthcare in EU Regions

The DAPHNE project runs from 2024 to 2028.

Recognising healthcare as a hugely energy-intensive sector, DAPHNE sets out to improve 6 national/regional/local authorities' capacity to design and implement better healthcare policies – focused specifically on decarbonisation.

To do this, the project will both chart a course to decarbonisation as well as identify breakthrough technologies and innovative tools that could be scaled-up to accelerate the healthcare sector's energy transition. 

Among 8 partner organisations from 7 EU countries, we at NCSH function as an overall European advisory organisation. We will support the participating national/regional/local authorities with matters related to technical solutions, policy implementation and best practices.

KitNewCare: Pioneering Transformation in Kidney Healthcare Sustainability Across Europe

kitnewcare logo 2
KitNewCare, an EU-funded Horizon Europe project, aims to help health and care systems better embrace environmental sustainability and climate-neutrality, with a focus on kidney care.

The project runs from January 2024 to December 2027.

At the heart of this initiative is a pressing issue: healthcare systems are significant contributors to carbon emissions, accounting for approximately 5–11 % of the total at global level. Within this context, kidney care emerges as an ideal candidate for systemic change due to its substantial disease burden, resource footprint and well-defined care pathways and ecosystem.

KitNewCare tackles the challenge head-on, identifying and addressing the major health, environmental, financial, and social hotspots in healthcare. The project goes beyond the traditional focus on building energy use – where carbon reduction has been historically concentrated – targeting the broader aspects of products, services and pathways that form a significant part of the carbon footprint.
