We know from past editions of CleanMed Europe that one of the things our attendees value the most is connecting with like-minded sustainable healthcare leaders with similar interests and challenges. Knowing that you’re not alone and sharing experiences with one another helps inspire and motivate us every day,” says Healthcare Without Harm, the conference organisers, in a statement.


This year CleanMed Europe is being held in the virtual space for the first time. It focusses on leadership for sustainable healthcare and on ways to not only reduce healthcare sector’s environmental footprint but also drive the change at the policy and market levels, necessary to reduce environmental harm and support human health and well-being. Bringing together healthcare professionals, policy-makers, sustainability practitioners and healthcare leaders, the conference showcases cutting-edge practices in sustainable healthcare and provides an opportunity for meaningful discussions. The sessions are grouped into themed conference tracks covering topics such as climate-smart healthcare, sustainable food, or circular healthcare.
