Pinnacle believes in kaitiakitanga or stewardship – the need to care for and protect our resources.
This is why we’ve included ‘a greener environment’ – making better choices for a better future – in our strategy.
The decisions on how to run your practice and the products you choose to use do matter. Individually and cumulatively choices can make a positive difference to the environment – as well as to the health of patients and communities.
We are pleased to promote and share this toolkit, developed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners.
This toolkit has been developed to help general practitioners (GPs), nurses and practice managers make environmentally responsible changes where possible in the day-to-day running of their practice. It is designed to make these changes as easy as possible and aims for changes that are at least cost neutral.
The RNZCGP has issued a position statement on climate change, and they regularly write about climate change in their GP Pulse magazine, we've included links to this below.
