For the Fundació Sanitària Mollet, an institution with a distinguished decade-long commitment to combatting climate change, and having effectively transformed Mollet University Hospital into a NetZero facility for direct emissions, the significance of the SAT cannot be overstated. It has not only enabled us to confirm our level of maturity in battling climate change but also to ensure the efficacy of our implemented strategies. Moreover, it facilitates the identification of forthcoming measures, specifically aimed at diminishing indirect emissions and integrating low-carbon care through operational services and clinical practice.

We have been searching for a means to assess our sustainability efforts in a comprehensive manner and identify areas for improvement. The SAT tool proved to be of value – its simplicity, clarity, and categorization into the respective ESG domains made it easy for us to engage various stakeholders in providing the required feedback. We also appreciate the ability to benchmark our efforts against that of other healthcare institutions and track our progress over time in a systematic manner. Overall, a useful tool for driving our ESG efforts forward.
