Envirometer for mental health institutes
This page shows the Envirometer for the average mental health institute based on an Envirometer graph and key figures. Transport and waste were not included as not enough institutes registered this information.
The pie chart shows the environmental impact distribution. Heating (fuel & heat) and electricity have the most environmental impact across all institutes.
|Environmental aspect||Key figure||Average||Best||Unit|
|Energy||electricity / surface area||59.4||31.4||kWh/m2|
|gas / surface area||21.4||14.9||m3 gas eq./m2|
|building energy / occupancy||152||99||GJ/occupancy|
|Water||water / occupancy||117||83||m3/occupancy|

Healthcare institutes can compare their annual results in the Monitor working group of Milieu Platform Zorgsector. The Envirometer and key figures for the average mental health institute were calculated in 2013 based on the annual results of eleven mental health institutes.
The average was calculated based on bed occupancy. The way bed occupancy is calculated can vary slightly depending on the function within the mental health institute. An institute with a large outpatient clinic compared to their bed occupancy rate is expected to have a higher environmental impact.
