How To Cover_Page_1The Green Healthcare Programme has identified many resources for the Irish healthcare sector in relation to resource efficiency and cost savings.

This is, of course, in addition to the direct advice and assistance given to all the participating hospitals within the programme. These resources are based on proven methodologies developed over several years to lower costs and reduce waste in many Irish hospitals.

GHCP now provides free and very useful resources for the healthcare sector, based on best practice as follows:

Benchmarks (providing hospitals with valuable information upon which they can rate themselves and act)

Case Studies (based on actual work done in Irish hospitals, to reduce costs and waste)

Best Practice Guides (providing hospitals with valuable assistance in achieving best practice in waste reduction)

How-To Guides (giving step by step instruction to hospitals to reduce costs and become more resource efficient)

Factsheets (offering valuable information on an range of waste-related topics in Irish hospitals)

Other Resources (we also provide links to guidance from other countries and on different topics)

We have combined the individual guidance documents into two booklets; one for Food Waste and one for Landfill, Recycling an Healthcare Risk Waste (HCRW). To download these documents click on the images below.
