The RACGP is a strong advocate for action on climate change
The RACGP recognises climate change as a key public health issue. And we know that GPs have an important role in identifying, reducing and managing the adverse health effects of climate change in our communities.
On behalf of our members and the community, the RACGP is an active advocate for action on climate change. We have a clear Position Statement on the impact of climate change on human health and we regularly respond to public consultations and engage in key projects in this space.
To align with our environmental position and ensure an ethical and sustainable approach to investments, the RACGP has also developed an Environmental and Social Governance Investment policy.
And to minimise our footprint, we’ve committed to net zero emissions by 2040.
