ESG impacts

Access to healthcare
The need for science, healthcare and hospitals is at an all-time high, especially in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. To meet this critical demand, Toledo has stepped up to deliver modern treatment centres at a critical time.

Toledo’s strength and success is built on its collaboration between various stakeholders – from contractors, architects, hospital staff and owners, all working together to deliver optimal care for patients.
The Toledo team work tirelessly to enhance the patient care environment, all the while reducing energy consumption and emissions. The hospital scored the top ‘A’ ranking on its Energy Efficiency Certificate following efforts minimize each buildings carbon footprint and reduce global carbon emissions.

Water conservation

In a potentially water scarce region, water conservation remains a top priority for Toledo. During construction, a sophisticated water system was implemented that aims to engage staff and society members into using water sensibly – for example, a faucet system has been installed that saves up to 60% of water compared to conventional ones. In addition, more than 70% of the hot water in the new Toledo Hospital will be generated by taking advantage of sunlight.

Reducing energy consumption
This is key to Toledo’s 2050 net zero target by reducing energy consumption across the asset as heating water can account for as much as 10% of an average hospital’s energy use.

“From day one, our vision for Nuevo Hospital de Toledo has been to drive patient-centred innovation, exceptional healthcare value and service delivery, across the hospital complex. In a changing global healthcare system, Toledo is bringing together the best minds for the benefit of patients, partners and society.”
