Veterinary professionals deliver a wide range of sustainability services to society.

We deliver these services as custodians of animal health and welfare - with impacts that reach beyond our patients and our clients. 

There is a growing interest in sustainability issues amongst members of the veterinary profession, including sustainable agriculture, environmental initiatives in veterinary practice, antimicrobial resistance, the welfare of kept animals in life and death, conservation and biodiversity, and the environmental footprint of pet ownership.

Vet Sustain's vision is for the veterinary profession to be a leading force for sustainability.

Our mission is to inform and inspire veterinary professionals to deliver positive change in society by integrating sustainability principles and practices in to our working lives.
