Sustainable Healthcare conference in cooperation with Miljörapporten

10 November 2016

Münchenbryggeriet, Stockholm

The NCSH and MiljöRapporten will hold a big conference next November centered around sustainable healthcare. The conference will be held in Stockholm on 10 November 2016 at Münchenbryggeriet. After that, the Nordic conference on sustainable healthcare will tour in different Nordic cities annually and will be held in Denmark or Norway in 2017. Our ambition is to provide all stakeholders of sustainable healthcare with an annual meeting point. The conference will be international, held in English, and we will invite participants outside the Nordic countries.

NCSH members will be offered reduced prices for sponsorship, exhibition and participation. There will be a parallel session with company presentations from NCSH members. Contact us at if you want more information or if you want to secure a place as an exhibitor or sponsor already now.

Miljörapporten is Sweden´s leading journal for sustainability professionals, offering a wide range of seminars, conferences and courses, as well as a monthly journal and a daily on-line publication with news and analysis.
