The International Hospital Federation’s (IHF) Geneva Sustainability Centre has launched a new Sustainability Accelerator Tool (SAT) in partnership with Deloitte.
The SAT is a cloud-based solution that allows hospitals and other healthcare organisations to assess their ‘sustainability maturity’ in the field of environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG).
Additionally, the SAT allows executives to ‘track progress against key performance indicators’ and compare their hospital’s core indicators against those of other healthcare organisations worldwide.
This tool can help managers to make the case for funding new sustainability initiatives, and complements other digital tools developed by the Geneva Sustainability Centre, such as the Carbon Emissions Learning Lab (CELL) management simulator.
“The healthcare sector is increasingly aware that it is responsible for more than five per cent of global carbon emissions,” said Deborah Bowen, President of the IHF. “The IHF established the Geneva Sustainability Centre to develop the programmes and resources to support healthcare leaders to become climate leaders.
