The ‘Greener Veterinary Practice Checklist’ – a shareable graphic designed to help veterinary workplaces operate in a more environmentally friendly way – has been released in the UK. It has been designed collaboratively by Vet Sustain, the British Veterinary Association (BVA), the British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) and the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS).

The BVA reported that Vet Sustain director Laura Higham said: “Veterinary professionals and members of the vet-led team are extremely well positioned to show leadership in sustainability, in their workplaces and in their communities. Our new checklist helps veterinary teams to put their sustainability intentions into practice, through a number of practical steps that will ultimately support the wellbeing of our patients, ourselves and the natural world.” Read more
