Why the veterinary profession?
We care deeply about the extensive negative impacts climate change has on animal welfare. Vets are critical thought leaders in this space who absolutely need to be engaged in achieving better climate change outcomes.
– We’re empathetic and we care.
– We have scientific knowledge and understanding.
– We communicate every day and do it well.
– We’re trusted and we connect with our community.
Yes, we want to help the veterinary profession meet its responsibility to reduce its carbon emissions. However we are also in a fantastic position to advocate within the community and use our scientific knowledge to help solve problems associated with transitioning to a low carbon economy.
