Climate change is stated to be the greatest global threat to human health in the 21st century. People and animals globally already experience unpredictable and catastrophic weather events, leading to loss of life and affecting food and resource security. Limiting global temperature rise will take unprecedented changes across all aspects of society. Clinical practice has a significant environmental impact, from being highly energy intensive and producing waste, to releasing spent anaesthetic gases. There are many changes we can make to reduce our environmental impact in clinical practice. A rigorous approach to environmental sustainability is fundamental to operational resilience and social responsibility.
