Christina Berthon Kirkegaard

Project Manager, Region South Denmark

Speaker Bio

I am passionate about facilitating projects that can engage the healthcare staff in the green transition so that we can reduce the climate footprint together without compromising patient safety.

I worked as a specialist responsible in the knee section. It was a department of alloplastic where we replace hips and knees after wear with prostheses. The prostheses generated a lot of plastic waste and I started a project of sorting plastic in the operating rooms. The project spread to the entire hospital and in the process I got in contact with the people of the Region.

Now I am playing a role as project manager assisting the hospitals across the Region with projects to support the green transition.
