2020 has been a special year. Many people's lives have been affected by the pandemic and organizations have been forced to rethink and change their businesses. We at NCSH, like many others, have rescheduled the majority of our activities and arranged them online instead, and we are very happy for the commitment and interest from our members to participate in this transformation.

In this newsletter we summarize what we have done during the year, share our plans for 2021, and of course wish you all a happy holidays and a happy new year!

Reports in 2020

This year we started working on the Nordic Know How, a report & webinar series that describes Nordic sustainable healthcare solutions and presents some examples of best practices. An article was also written this year together with Politecnico di Torino, on the subject “A multi stakeholder perspective on sustainable healthcare: From 2030 onwards”.

Recorded Material

As we have done most of our activities online this year, we created a Youtube channel where we have published all recorded webinars and conferences.

Projects in 2020

We have continued to work with the projects Platform for Internationalization: Energy and Climate Smart Healthcare and Future of Healthcare - Sustainable and Smart today, financed by the Swedish Energy Agency and Nordic Innovation. But we have also received funding for two new projects:

Nordic Scalers - Toolbox for scaling up Nordic Sustainable Healthcare, financed by Nordic Innovation. If you are interested in this project and want to partner up, please contact

sWASH & Grow, financed by Vinnova and under the lead of RISE. This project is focusing on humanitarian crisis and conflicts and providing sustainable and circular of-grid WASH-solutions.

Activities planned in 2021

In 2021 we have a lot of interesting projects and activities planned and hopefully we will be able to arrange some of these live. Don’t forget to keep an eye on our calendar for updates!

  • International Conference together with TIMSCDR, affiliated with University of Mumbai

  • Joint webinar together with Business Finland

  • Nordic Conference on Sustainable Healthcare 2021

  • Nordic Know-How reports & webinars

  • Project Start: Grønnköpingkið

  • Multiple delegations around the world, depending on the pandemic situation.


Grønnköpingkið - The Greenest Hospital in the World

One of the things we are extra excited about next year, is that we will start working with the project “Grønnköpingkið”. This will be a fictional hospital containing only sustainable solutions.

The result will be an interactive model where you can find solutions within various categories such as waste management, water treatment, MedTech with a sustainability edge, energy efficiency etc. Under each category solutions you will be able to see where the solution is installed, what the sustainability impact is, supplier information, technical information, contact information to hospital staff, and more.

If you want to participate or have a solution that should be in the model, please contact us. Read more Here.
