Environment

Autumn Animals is working hard to be Climate Positive by the end of 2023.

Accountability

Our approach is backed by the Vet Sustain Greener Veterinary Checklist. Vet Sustain is a veterinary consultancy who advise veterinary practises on how to become more sustainable and climate responsible. 

Our Approach

We are a business member of the Ecologi network, who will offset all our employees' emissions based on their FTE 

Next to the trees we plant through Ecologi for offsetting purposes, we are also planting one tree per patient we had to say goodbye to, via 1 Tree Cards

✔ Of course, we know that offsetting is not the solution to Climate Change. That is why we use reusable materials where possible and limit single use materials

Autumn Animals works towards becoming a holistic mobile veterinary clinic through local care teams. Less travel time equals more care time

✔ All our employees are incentivised to travel to Autumn Animals patients by (e-) bike, (e-) scooter or public transport. We encourage them to do so by paying for their travel expenses if they use one of these modes of transport

✔ We use an e-cargo bike to transport equipment and deceased pets after your pet's home euthanasia, meaning negligable carbon emissions

We encourage environmental stewardship in caregivers by advising them about the pros & cons of certain medication and insecticides, especially in the final stages of their animal's life

We are always looking for a more environmentally friendly way to provide after passing care, than cremation

✔ We are striving to create our own environmentally friendly body bags for burial and cremation by the end of 2025

✔ Autumn Animals is a paperless company, that uses Ecosia as their primary search engine and refurbished appliances where possible

✔ And last but not least, our goal is to be climate positive by the end of 2023
