VfCA Climate Care Program: the business case for Net Zero

The world first Vets for Climate Action Climate Care Program is designed to make it easy for you to develop and embed an enduring culture of sustainability within your veterinary team.

All quality vet practices are proud of their commitment to 'best care' for animals. Climate change is the biggest threat to the future of animal health, so 'best care' should also include a commitment to Net Zero carbon emissions all the way through to 2050 and beyond.

Net Zero commitments are now widely promoted in the community, so how do you go about implementing a Net Zero strategy in a veterinary practice and how will it impact on the business fundamentals of profit, team purpose and client value?

The VfCA Climate Care Program enables you to align a culture of sustainability with your existing business strategies of standards of care, team retention, recruitment, marketing and budgets.

Business likes certainty and it is certain that climate change will continue to get worse, so a proactive practice should mitigate the risks and exploit the opportunities. The easiest way to do this is to join the VfCA Climate Care Program.
