Improving Environmental Sustainability in Veterinary Practice
We are extremely proud of the fact that Davies was the first veterinary practice to achieve accreditation from Investors in the Environment (iiE)
We were awarded iiE’s top level Green accreditation in 2019, with a primary focus on improving our environmental sustainability, and we have plans to share experience and knowledge by providing ‘Sustainability CPD’ for our referring vets.
Our intent is to more than just improve our own sustainability; we want to help other practices navigate the steps to take to improve both environmental and social sustainability in their own veterinary practice. Below you can access information on why we chose to be audited and achieve the accreditation and why sustainability is important to us.
Below you can access our press releases, our Environmental Policy and more about our initiatives in the ‘Your questions answered’ section. If you are interested in attending our ‘Sustainability CPD’ at Davies Veterinary Specialists please contact Ellie.West@vetspecialists.co.uk.
We are delighted that Ellie and our Green Group have been honoured by the iiE for their continued work to improve both our sustainability and help other practices introduce their own environmental initiatives. They were selected as ‘Best Green Champion’ in the medium-sized business category at the 2019 iiE awards in April. Read more in our press release below.
