Abstract

: Embarking on a sustainability journey presents many opportunities for veterinary practices; cost savings through reduced resource use, encouraging staff engagement as well as innovation, and marketing opportunities to name but a few. If you aspire to reduce the environmental impact of your workplace, and realise the urgency of positive action, then this session is for you! The session covers how to get started on your sustainability journey, what the key considerations should be and what can be achieved on a range of budgets. It also introduces the support material available from Vet Sustain and demonstrates how to put it to use in practice. We delve into the business incentives of operating sustainably, how to communicate your green vision with the team and how to overcome any barriers you might face. Now is the time for the veterinary profession to take action, to preserve our magnificent planet for the future generations and to ensure that we can continue to provide outstanding veterinary care. As they say, ‘be the change you want to see in the world’!

: Zoe Halfacree provides an insight into the work that Vet Sustain is doing to support practices to make changes for environmental sustainability. Vet Sustain has produced a checklist, which is endorsed by BVA, BVNA and SPVS, as a guide for getting started in going green and this session outlines some of this advice. There are lots of great tips from becoming a little greener to embarking upon environmental management accreditation.
