This page shows the environmental impact of the average nursing home based on Envirometer graphs and key figures. In the transport theme, only business traffic has been included because too few institutions registered commuter traffic and passenger transport.
The pie chart shows how this environmental impact is distributed. Electricity has the biggest environmental impact, followed by Fuel (natural gas for heating). Commercial waste also makes a significant contribution to this impact. Business travel, hazardous waste, water & wastewater have a minimal impact.
|Environmental aspect||Key figure||Average||Best||Unit|
|Energy||electricity / surface area||56,8||29,9||kWh/m2|
|natural gas / surface area||15,4||5,3||m3 gas eq./m2|
|Building-specific energy / surface area||1,0||0,7||GJ/m2|
|Water||water / bed||64.502||32.609||liter/occupied bed|
|Waste||waste / bed||726||268||kg/occupied bed|
|waste separation percentage||32||86||%|
|Transport||business transport per bed||25.1||liter diesel/fte|

In 2018, Stichting Stimular executed the “Envirometer Benchmark for Healthcare Institutions” for the second time (based on data from 2017). 14 health care institutions participated with a total of 28 barometers. Stimular has determined the average environmental score for care institutions for the elderly (a mix of care and nursing homes).
