Mediclinic wants to be carbon neutral

Mediclinic, one of South Africa’s largest medical groups will invest vast amounts of money to the tune of R2.2 billion to reach carbon neutrality by the year 2030, reports Business Day.

The group said it had signed a deal with Energy Exchange that would see the medical facilities under the hospital group coupled up to independent electricity suppliers.

The move isn’t just in the interest of the environment even though that is the main goal of the initiative. Mediclinic says there are also economic benefits to be had from the green deal, which include lower tariffs for the group.

Furthermore, Mediclinic will also invest more in environmentally-friendly equipment for its hospitals.
