Resource Description: 

The theme of this first report in the Nordic Know-How series is nitrous oxide destruction. Nitrous oxide substantially contributes to the climate footprint of the healthcare sector. This report provides good examples on how to reduce emissions of nitrous oxide in hospitals.

Examples are presented from Swedish municipal regions and hospitals. The examples illustrate what can be done to reduce emissions of nitrous oxide and thus the climate impact from healthcare facilities.
