Environmental Sustainability Working Group

The Environmental Sustainability Working Group (ESWG) reports its activities and initiatives to the Professional Affairs Executive Committee (PAEC).​ 

We're committed to minimising the health impact of climate change and promoting environmental sustainability. We endorse the benefits of environmental sustainability to our fellows, trainees, specialist international medical graduates (SIMGs), and the broader community.

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.
