Austrian Public sector develops a free database of disinfectants
Good Practice Award commended entry 2018-19
The Vienna Ombuds Office for Environmental Protection was commended for successfully implementing in the City of Vienna a database that leads to substantial reductions in the use of disinfectants containing harmful substances.
The legal requirement applied to the use of this database for all municipal departments has led to a significant reduction in the use of substances that are harmful to human health and the environment.
The database and training materials are available online for free in both English and German and the database is easily transferable to other public and private organisations worlwide.
