Carbon Emissions Learning Lab (CELL)

CELL is a learning tool for navigating net zero - a simulation, powered by real-world data, to support hospital leaders to become climate leaders through informed, sustainability-oriented decision-making.

A management simulation to drive greenhouse gas emissions reduction in hospitals

Welcome to the Carbon Emissions Learning Lab (CELL).

CELL is a powerful tool that empowers hospital leaders to make informed decisions and assess the impact of their choices on the environment.

At the Geneva Sustainability Centre, we believe that learning by doing is the best way to understand the strategies that can help hospitals reduce their environmental footprint while improving human health.

A web-based application to analyse and understand decisions for sustainability

In this engaging simulation, learners experience different scenarios and assess the impact of their decisions. With our state-of-the-art technology, you can develop your skills in addressing the sustainability challenges of today and tomorrow, without waiting for a crisis to happen.

Understand the decision-making process to reduce your hospital's environmental footprint

The Geneva Sustainability Centre’s masterclasses, delivered by leading experts, are complemented by CELL - providing you with a comprehensive learning experience. CELL can also be used on a standalone basis to support hospitals' sustainability training initiatives.

94% of users either strongly agree or agree that CELL is enjoyable, and helpful in increasing knowledge about hospital decarbonization - and 100% of users would recommend CELL to a colleague.

I really appreciated the costs and graph analyses that were provided when selecting options. Helps understand the impact of upfront costs versus long-term benefit.

The different options presented during the five years were very illustrative. Before the simulation some of them were undervalued or directly unknown for us.

The whole simulation was helpful as I did not know strategies that hospitals could take to address CO2 emissions. The dashboards looking at each area were helpful to direct focus and see where opportunities were.
