iiE member Davies Green Group Shortlisted for National Environmental Award

Davies Veterinary Specialists Green Group has been shortlisted for the Institute of Environmental Management Sustainability Impact Awards for the ‘Best Team’ for 2019. These prestigious national awards attract high calibre entries from national organisations of all sizes, with the winners announced at a special Awards Ceremony in September.

The Sustainability Impact Awards were introduced by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) to recognise the people and businesses transforming the world to sustainability. Organisations of all sizes and from all sectors are eligible to enter, from sole traders and private enterprise to multinationals and public sector.

Davies, the Hertfordshire-based veterinary small animal referral centre, has been firmly committed to sustainability in practice since 2017. It was the first UK veterinary practice to have achieved accreditation from iiE, in 2018 and was awarded Silver level accreditation in 2018.

In addition Davies’ sustainability lead Ellie West, European Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia at Davies, achieved Best Green Champion at the iiE awards ceremony in April. Most recently Davies took part in World Environment Day, encouraging staff to make pledges and calculate their own carbon footprints. The centre has also produced a pet owner newsletter to support green pet ownership, available on their website.


Ellie West said: “Davies Veterinary Specialists are thrilled to have received recognition for our Green Group by being shortlisted for the IEMA Best Team 2019 award for their efforts to make our practice and our sector more environmentally sustainable. We have been supported and guided all the way by the professional support we have received from April Sotomayor of Investors in the Environment, and there is no way we would be in this position without our iiE accreditation, so thank you.”
