CUH awarded third green flag
Cork University Hospital has become the first hospital worldwide to be awarded a third Green Flag.
Green Flags are awarded to campuses that implement a programme to maintain a clean and sustainable environment.
As part of the programme, CUH developed wildflower zones, a herb garden and provided outdoor seating areas for staff to use when taking a break.
CUH plans to install outdoor exercise equipment, staff exercise programmes and a Sli na Slainte route.
The Green Flag is awarded by the International Foundation for Environmental Education.
