Reducing the environmental impact of a general practice

General practices have the opportunity to contribute to the preservation of our environment and planetary health. Efforts to reduce the environmental impact of a practice also has financial benefits.

General practices can lead by example and makes changes to the way they operate to reduce their environmental footprint. The RACGPs Reducing the environmental impact of a general practice factsheet provides practices with advice on how to:

  • reduce energy consumption
  • review water usage
  • reduce paper usage
  • increase recycling, and
  • minimise and recycle e-waste.

The RACGP has also developed an e-waste policy template to help practices articulate how they manage e-waste.
