Green Culture

An internationally distinguished green hospital.
71% less CO2 emissions in 10 years.

Green culture is embedded in our genetics. This has been developed from the very conception of the architectural project, with respect for the environmental and orographic characteristics of the surroundings of the Natural Park of Gallecs, an outstanding agricultural space in the geographical area of ​​Vallès, and always looking for systems and methods of water use, and the commitment to renewable energies and energy efficiency.

Our goal is to achieve a neutral carbon footprint

Hospitals are some of the public centres with the greatest energy impact on the environment. For this reason, green culture must be part of the strategy and permeate the structure and processes of our centres. We work on waste management, appropriate use of resources, mobility, clinical management, and optimization of processes in order to reduce the environmental impact of our activity. Because, just as we are part of the problem, we must also be part of the solution.

Green centers

Our Mollet University Hospital has won the Silver award in the Ashikaga-Nikken Excellence Award for Green Hospitals category of the International Awards 2021.
