Over the last 50 years there has been a great acceleration in the use of natural resources, production of pollution and waste. We need to be thinking about how we deliver great veterinary care in the long term while also being able to limit our contribution to climate change, use of natural resources and waste.
We are a social enterprise and sustainability is one of our company values, so we are innovating to deliver veterinary services that care for the environment and society as well as our clients and patients. Achieving this is a long journey and we are just at the start.
The journey to sustainability involves us looking holistically at our processes, buildings and services and working closely with our staff, suppliers and contractors to bring about really positive change and at the same time building a better and better veterinary service that delivers social value to our clients and their animals.
