Description:
The Green Healthcare programme (GHCP) aims to improve resource efficiency and help prevent and reduce waste and emissions from healthcare facilities in Ireland. To date the programme has worked with 30 healthcare facilities, including acute hospitals and primary community continuing care (PCCC) facilities, with almost 100 individual surveys undertaken. The acute hospitals involved in the programme to date represent 50% of the total acute beds in Ireland - a very representative profile of Irish hospitals. Work undertaken in the GHCP programme observed that food waste was an area with great potential for reduction and associated cost savings. The following fact sheet, guidance documents and case studies outline how healthcare facilities can reduce the quantity of food waste they generate.
