In the future, health care systems will also have to pay greater attention to sustainability. In project business, we already integrate national environmental standards and regulations into the planning and construction of a hospital or other health care facility as an active contribution toward environmental protection. VAMED’s extensive expertise in environmental management is an important success factor, especially in growth markets in Africa and Asia. For instance, VAMED built and now operates a hospital in Gabon, which features a modern sewage treatment plant and a high-temperature incineration plant designed to European standards.

We also achieved success in the service business in the area of environmental protection. VAMED, for instance, has been responsible for the technical management of the Vienna General Hospital and University Hospital AKH for over 25 years. During the period, energy and water consumption were significantly reduced: energy consumption decreased by 12%, demand for long-distance heat by 22%, and drinking water consumption by an impressive 45%. The volume of waste classified as hazardous medical waste at AKH fell by about 65%.

VAMED is an active member of working groups and committees that formulate E-STANDARDS for hospitals. These are Austrian standards issued by the Austrian Standards Institute.
