CLIRE – Climate Friendly Health and Care
The CLIRE project consists of four sub-projects, each focusing on a particular aspect of health care management with substantial potential for improvement in terms of sustainability and the use of clean technologies and practices. The first three sub-projects are managed by the healthcare management organization of Region Skåne.
Congestion charges in Stockholm
The introduction of congestion charges in Stockholm was one of the reasons why Stockholm was awarded “European Green Capital 2010”. The introduction has led to reduced traffic with somewhere between 20 and 25% and that air quality has been improved, according to the Road Administration.
Creating the Zero Energy Buildings of the Future
The new regional headquarters of Region Skåne is one of the most energy efficient buildings in Sweden. This represents one further step in the direction of energy efficiency – planning and constructing the energy efficient buildings of the future. Now the process to build a new center for forensic medicine in the city of Trelleborg has been started.
Cutting Edge Sustainable Building
The municipality of Örnsköldsvik has a long given priority to sustainable and energy efficient building. The expertise regarding energy efficiency and alternative energy sources are great and we have benefited from the expertise available internally in the municipality and held by planners, designers and installers when new building erected.
