|Why we care||Our People||Volunteer Led||Our Story|
A world where we have halted the climate crisis to secure a shared future for animals and people.
We mobilise the veterinary profession and broader animal care community to tackle the climate crisis within and beyond our sector.
We provide opportunities for vets, vet nurses, veterinary support staff and the broader animal care community to tackle the climate crisis both within and beyond veterinary practice.
We help clinics reduce their emissions, support our members to educate and engage people within their own circles of influence, and advocate for policies that reduce Australia’s climate pollution at local, state and federal levels.
We mobilise the veterinary profession and animal care community to advocate for and take climate action. Our objectives are for the veterinary profession and animal care community to:
- reduce our emissions as much as possible
- exercise our political power for climate action
- inspire the people we engage with to advocate for and take climate action.
We have one full-time staff member who is responsible for executing the day-to-day of our organisation, and who in turn supports and is supported by multiple volunteer teams.
Veterinarians for Climate Action is a Company Limited by Guarantee and is registered as a charity with the ACNC. We are governed by a Board of Directors, which is in turn elected by a group of approximately forty formal members. Our Board of Directors is responsible for providing leadership and direction to us and bears ultimate legal responsibility.
We exist primarily as a result of generous donations from people like yourself. To supplement this, we also apply for various grants and have sponsorship opportunities for our ClimateSmart hospital sustainability program.
