Environmental Sustainability Working Group

The college is committed to minimising the health impact of climate change and promoting environmental sustainability. The college endorses the benefits of environmental sustainability to our fellows, trainees, specialist international medical graduates (SIMGs) and the broader community. The Environmental Sustainability Working Group (ESWG) reports its activities and initiatives to the Professional Affairs Executive Committee (PAEC).


The working group was established in October 2019 to promote environmental sustainability by evaluating the current practices within ANZCA and to gather information about sustainability activities undertaken by fellows, trainees and specialist international medical graduates (SIMGs) in their local workplaces throughout Australia and New Zealand.

The group aims to identify gaps in the current information and resources related to education and training in
this area and foster a bi-national approach to environmental sustainability in anaesthesia, perioperative medicine and pain relief.
