Healthy Growth – Appreciating Resources

With our green agenda, we pursue goals that reach far beyond environmental protection - from waste reduction to satisfied patients and employees because we don’t just want to make our patients healthier, but our environment as well.

Our Goals

Based on our responsibility for the future, we – as a “green” hospital – want to conduct ourselves in all areas according to the principles of sustainability. As such, we aim to reconcile economic, ecological and social objectives at the UKE:

  • Medical quality
  • Economic efficiency
  • Ecological and social responsibility

Green Projects

A lot of people talk about environmental protection – we take charge.

Whether it is through technological innovations in energy management, the improvement of our processes, or the reduction of vehicular traffic on our premises – we have already completed many groundbreaking environmental projects. To get a better picture of projects we have already implemented, click on the green facts. But we go one step further. That is why we have started our project “Das grünen UKE” – for more sustainability in all areas of the UKE.

We have defined the following areas of activity:

  • Building and energy management
  • Green traffic and surrounding vicinities
  • Resource consumption
  • Purchasing / logistics
  • Human resource management
