Sammanfattning

The healthcare sector is resource intensive and consumes large amount of energy, water, and materials. A study on the release of carbon dioxide from a life cycle perspective of Region Scania's operations has shown that 41 % of the total CO2 emissions is related to material consumption. A later study showed that one of the products with large climate impact was waste bags and other waste wrapping systems. This paper investigates the potentials for climate impact reduction and monetary savings for different scenarios of waste disposal at Region Scania
