Sustainable practices for your veterinary environment


park_ridge_0035_HDRRecently, the veterinary industry has experienced a surge in sustainable market trends in practice environments. Designing, building or refurbishing a facility with the environment in mind is a guaranteed method of ensuring your business’s ability to provide for current and future demands.

The fitout of your environment can integrate green solutions seamlessly into your workflow by incorporating features such as optimal air quality, energy efficient lighting and equipment, resourceful management of daylight as well as the obvious—the use of durable, sustainable materials. Ceiling fans and thoughtfully configured window placement can replace air-conditioning on milder days and including insulation in framing can warm your building in winter without chewing through ducted heating costs. If you’re considering breathing new life into your facility’s design, it’s worth imagining these features as part of the furniture. Solutions like these are easily achieved in any environment, whether it’s a new build, a refurbishment or simply an update. They are sustainable, inexpensive and, ultimately, an investment in your business’s future. In doing so, you recover the cost of delivery over time through significantly reduced energy bills and beyond that, you continue to save. Acknowledging a responsibility to the earth in your practice is moral, progressive and speaks volumes to your clients about the kind of business you run, as well as reinforcing a commitment to their animals’ welfare in a visual way.
