What We Do

We provide opportunities for vets, vet nurses, veterinary support staff and the broader animal care community to tackle climate change both within and beyond veterinary practice.

Our objectives are for the veterinary profession and animal care community to:

  1. reduce our emissions as much as possible
  2. exercise our democratic power for climate action
  3. inspire the people we engage with to advocate for and take climate action.

About the Climate Care Program

The Climate Care Program by Vets for Climate Action is empowering vet teams to take the lead on environmental sustainability and help bring a halt to climate change. Created by vets and vet nurses for veterinary teams, the Climate Care Program is designed to be realistic and workable in a busy veterinary practice.
