Introducing HealthcareLCA

CASCADES is delighted to share a new tool to support the global transition towards sustainable health systems. HealthcareLCA  is an open-access, interactive database of healthcare’s environmental impacts. It currently houses over 4,000 environmental impact values for more than 1,400 healthcare products and activities, including equipment, pharmaceuticals, investigations, procedures, services, and overall health systems.
