ENVIRONMENT

We are invested in the environment.

Here at Torrington Orthopaedics we care deeply about the environment. We are especially concerned with the impact that Veterinary Practice has on the environment. We signed up to Investors in the Environment Award in 2019 and gained the Bronze Award in 2022. This year we hope to achieve the Silver Award. Being part of the Investors in the Environment programme has helped us to understand the impact veterinary practice has on our world, but also gives us a framework to work within to make the most impactful changes. Have a look at

to see how our we are progressing towards the award. You can also have a look at our Environment policy here.

So far we have audited our use of electricity, gas and water, and reduced them by implementing some simple measures such as using eco rated electrical equipment and having eco ambassadors who remind us all to turn off lights and equipment when not in use.

We have reduced our waste production, we use a waste contractor that recycles card, tins and plastics, and uses other waste to produce green electricity.

We compost kitchen food waste and shredded paper and use this to grow vegetables in our practice garden. We are also a bee friendly practice and plant flowers to encourage bees to visit.

We have also changed to Bamboo Toilet paper, recycled office paper and we are using Splosh refillable cleaning products for the kitchen and bathroom areas. So far we have saved over 600 bottles from being wasted!
