Medicover strives to decrease the company’s environmental impact over time. We view environmental care as part of human health and wellbeing. Medicover’s main environmental impacts and risks are related to energy use in our hospitals, clinics and other premises; from various equipment and materials; from external and internal transport; and from waste.
Based on our principle of decentralised responsibility and accountability, environmental management takes place locally in each division and country. The environmental management systems used by several Medicover units are certified according to schemes such as EMAS.
Currently, our focus is to ensure compliance with all applicable rules and regulations as well as the environmental policy and to manage environmental risks. Our operations also achieve -environmental gains by focusing on efficiency and cost.
During 2018 we developed Medicover’s first Group-wide environmental policy and the implementation of the policy was initiated.
