Championing the Climate: From Insight to Impact

Caring for animals means caring for the climate. Working towards Net Zero is your opportunity to take action on climate change. Join us to hear from Dr Jeremy Watson about the next “must have” practice development tool.

In this Masterclass we will share tips and tricks, and introduce VfCA’s Veterinary Carbon Calculator - this first specifically for Australian veterinary practice and which will help you prepare for new government regulations. Learn how ‘systems thinking’ and the Climate Care Program can unlock unexpected benefits for your practice, your team, your clients and more broadly for animal health and drive One Health solutions.

We are excited to announce that this Masterclass will have an associated quiz and will be eligible for 1 CPD Point and 1 AVNAT Point. 


About the presenter, Dr Jeremy Watson 

Dr Jeremy Watson BVSc (Hons) MANZCVs (SA surgery) graduated from Melbourne Uni in 1986 and by 1998 had established the Brimbank Vet Clinic - now a 5 vet small animal practice in suburban Melbourne. In 2011 the Brimbank Vet Clinic was rebuilt incorporating the latest environmental design features facilitating a pathway to make the practice carbon neutral. Jeremy has completed short courses in Circular economics and Net zero for business through Cambridge University. He recently co-authored the paper, The path to Net Zero carbon emissions for veterinary practice published in Frontiers of Veterinary Science journal. 

Jeremy joined VfCA to help amplify the role veterinary teams can play in motivating the vet community to take urgent action on climate change and has played an integral part in developing the Climate Care Program.
