York-based VetPartners is increasing its workforce to become Net Zero

The veterinary group wants to reduce carbon emissions in its practices – one of the group’s key objectives as part of its sustainability strategy.

Kelly has joined as sustainability manager and her role will include setting carbon reduction targets for VetPartners and its practices, reviewing energy efficiency and looking for ways to make the veterinary group’s supply chain more sustainable.

In its ambitions, VetPartners has set CO2 reduction targets for 2026 and 2033.

Veterinary practices are striving to become more environmentally friendly and thanks to the passion and commitment of colleagues across the Group, VetPartners is on track to achieve – and in some cases exceed – the key targets set out in the Group’s sustainability strategy.

Kelly will work alongside Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) director Hannah James and Sustainability Coordinator Harriet Ferris and will be based at the veterinary group’s headquarters in York.

She holds an MSc in Sustainability, Environmental Consulting and Project Management and has 10 years of experience in sustainability roles in the procurement and education sectors.

Kelly said: “The veterinary industry is new to me, but I’m looking forward to expanding my knowledge and applying my previous experience in a new sector.” I look forward to working across the organization to contribute to the positive impact , which VetPartners is already achieving, and to help the organization achieve its carbon reduction and broader sustainability goals.”

Hannah added: “With Kelly on the team we can look at our longer-term projects and look even further into the future to ensure we are best responding to the climate crisis.”

“We have already made really positive progress in reducing our carbon footprint by working closely with our practices and have received strong commitment from them. Kelly joining the team will help take this even further.”

“Now more than 80 percent of our practices are on renewable energy tariffs, over 99 percent no longer use nitrous oxide and more and more companies are joining the Investors in the Environment organization, which allows them to monitor their own CO2 emissions. “
