Besides the fact that the UMCG has a lot of hotels in the near surrounding in walking distance and is directly linked to public transport, the UMCG is the first hospital in the Netherlands to receive the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) designation. A nice recognition for the sustainability policy that we have been working on since 2020. Alderman of the municipality of Groningen, Kirsten de Wrede, handed over the predicate to Ate van der Zee, chairman of the UMCG's board of directors. They hoisted the SDG sustainability flag especially for this occasion.
We are in full swing and we already have more than 30 Green Teams in the UMCG. These are groups of employees who want to make their department/specialism more sustainable together. Together we push boundaries for a sustainable future of health!
