The Sirio-Libanês Hospital is one of the largest health systems in Brazil. It has a robust commitment to sustainability and annually discloses its emissions inventory in the Brazilian GHG Protocol Program (since 2011). The Hospital buys energy on the open market with the aim of optimizing the operation and cost of energy purchases.

By implementing different actions, the hospital reduced total energy consumption by 40%, and energy reduction will result in a 15% reduction in total GHG emissions.

About SHiPP

The Sustainable Health in Procurement Project (SHiPP) was a four-year program developed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in collaboration with Health Care Without Harm and funded by the Swedish International Development and Cooperation Agency (SIDA), that aimed to reduce the harm to people and the environment caused by the manufacture, use, and disposal of medical products and by the implementation of health programs.

With an expansive and diverse network of over 1,700 members in more than 80 countries, GGHH was a key vehicle to engage the health sector around the globe on sustainable procurement through the Sustainable Health in Procurement Project (SHiPP).
