GPhC commits to play its part in addressing climate change
Our vision is to have safe and effective pharmacy care at the heart of healthier communities. We know that climate change is a global emergency that creates health risks and exacerbates health inequalities.
We believe we all have a role to play in contributing to addressing climate change. We have joined a newly formed cross-regulatory group which is focusing on addressing issues including environmental sustainability.
At the GPhC we have brought together colleagues from across the organisation to consider the environmental impact we have as an employer and as a regulator. Our first step is to undertake work to establish a GPhC carbon footprint baseline from which to develop a programme of work to improve our environmental performance and measure improvements.
This is just the beginning of our journey. As our work progresses we want to work with all our stakeholders to understand their priorities and consider how we can all work together to make a contribution to addressing climate change.
