Minimising our impact on the environment
Every member of the team at DWR is dedicated to carrying out our very important work of caring for pets, whilst also trying to minimise our impact on the environment.
We take every care to respect the environment in the running of our specialist veterinary centre, from ordering sustainable products, monitoring our use of precious resources, to how we get rid of our waste.
Our building has been constructed using sustainable practices. We’ve consulted closely with Investors in the Environment (IIE) to reduce our environmental impact, not only during the build but also in the future ongoing running of the hospital.
Our new building gives us a chance to work towards the top-level IIE Green accreditation as the new building holds an A-rated Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and recycled vinyl flooring, ceiling tiles and acoustic panelling.
We are constantly striving to improve how we work and currently hold the Investors in the Environment (iiE) Silver accreditation. https://www.iie.uk.com/what-is-iie/how-does-it-work/
