Environmental management in Hospitals

In 1995 we have implemented the first certified environmental management system in a hospital worldwide, at Tulln hospital in Lower Austria.

Since then we have realized different projects in more than 30 hospitals and we are working we the major Austrian hospital associations on the development and implementation of their environmental strategies.

ETA is also member of the international network "Health Care Without Harm".

From environmental improvement projects to integrated management systems, from team trainings to comprehensive strategies: Use our extensive expertise about environmental management in healthcare.
