Netcare’s 2009 environmental focus in South Africa was centred on their Hospital division, which is the largest contributor to their environmental impact.

Reports show that water saving initiatives and increased staff awareness at Netcare hospitals has resulted in a reduction in water consumption of 19.2% (to 1,467,000 kl). All hospital facilities now have substantial on-site water reserves; with on-site water purification equipment in rural areas to address water quality concerns.

Further water saving strategies will be implemented in 2010 as part of their long-term commitment to minimise their environmental impact. To ensure adequate measurement, standard hospital reporting now includes monthly tracking of the carbon footprint of all facilities.
