Executive Summary

The concept of green building has existed for a long time. The need for green hospitals came into existence with the growing awareness of climate change and the monitoring of hospital activity. Green hospitals provide care for patients without harming the environment through their activities.

The number of hospitals moving toward sustainability is on a rise. International nonprofit organizations are helping hospitals to achieve their goals of zero emission. Healthcare without harm is at the forefront of the global green hospital movement. Local organizations are also playing vital roles in pushing the momentum for green hospitals.

Hospitals are under pressure to decrease the operating margins and to provide better quality services. The costs of energy are rising at high rates, along with the cost of water supplies and of waste disposal. It is therefore imperative for hospitals to implement more energy-efficient solutions and lighting to reduce energy bills. Hospitals must better utilize and monitor their existing facilities to get the maximum output. Using recyclable products and autoclaves to sterilize multi-use products can be a great way to reduce waste and improve costs.

The major challenges while implementing green solutions include the high initial cost of technology. The high initial investments and the delayed returns of green solutions are major drawbacks affecting their implementation. The need for trained manpower is another major challenge affecting market growth.
