We’ve had a rollercoaster of a year, and a lot of us have had our key motivations around our careers brought into question. We considered our Environmental impact as a company and realised that environmental protection is one of the most important factors of why we do what we do.
What We’re Doing
The first thing we did was realign our environmental commitments, which you can find here. But we wanted to take it a step further by taking the best environmental procedures that we can find and spread them to all of our clients – so we can continue to address the environmental issues not only in our own production line, but in the industry as a whole.
This year we will be launching an initiative to promote green policies at every level of the industry. We want to showcase how certain clinics and hospitals are making a difference in the way that they do business. We want others to be able to learn best practices and help everyone reduce our collective carbon footprint.
How to Get Involved
If you would like to be considered, please share an environmentally focused policies your practice or hospital uses. The best of each month will be featured in our green showcase!
You’ll also receive a small gift from Thames Medical! All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with some information about how you’re helping to reduce your environmental impact.
The veterinary industry has many problematic environmental procedures, specifically around landfill waste (think plastic disposables, needles etc). However, there are a number of procedures (such as anaesthetic gas use and disposal) that can be controlled easily. If you have any best practice, we would love to hear it. Help us share this vital knowledge with our clients and make some strides towards becoming a more sustainable industry.
