Baltic Green HealthCare


The health sector plays a crucial role for human physical, mental, and social well-being and is representing a considerable economic power as mover of Life Science innovations.  At the same time its substantial global climate footprint (attributed to extremely high energy consumption, huge amounts of toxic waste etc) is menacing paradoxically people´s health and wellbeing. But the health care sector itself can become a driving force in developing sustainable and profitable solutions for its proper environmental challenges as well as for other industries. Due to the innate approach of disease prevention coming along with a considerable buying power of the health care industry, it could give a shift towards sustainability to the entire economy.

Baltic Green Healthcare is a special interest group, consisting of hospitals and health care units as practices and care units, SMEs and representatives of academia and administration from Germany, Poland, and Lithuania (project partners in the EU South Baltic Region project Eco4Life), collaborating with institutions from the Northern Baltic Sea.
The aim of Baltic Green Healthcare is to develop a common transregional approach for sustainable healthcare in the whole Baltic Sea Region, according to the policy of the ScanBalt flagship project "Baltic Sea Health Region" as part of the EU Baltic Sea Strategy. ScanBalt is a leading network of clusters, universities, companies and public authorities working within life sciences to promote the Baltic Sea Region as a globally competitive green valley and health region.

The Baltic Green Healthcare concept is based on a multi-dimensional approach and combines ecology, economy and well-being of human beings in hospitals and healthcare facilities. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany -with BioConValley® as central contact for life science and health economy in North Eastern Germany- is considered pilot region for the Baltic Green Healthcare cluster. It is closely linked to emerging hospital markets in Poland and the Baltics, as well as to the dynamic Medtech region in the North of the Baltic Sea.

Within the cluster, research institutions and SMEs intend to develop in the future tailored hospital solutions for sustainable waste- and wastewater management systems, renewable energy production and energy efficiency. The impact of sustainable construction, uncontaminated air, lighting solutions, healthy food and evidence-based design (EBD) principles on the well-being and health of patients and personnel will be subject of advanced research and innovation transfer, to encourage entrepreneurship for systemic green hospital solutions.
