Doctors urged to take action on fossil fuels

15 September 2023

The World Association of Family Doctors (WONCA) is seeking support for an open letter to global leaders, urging them to take decisive action on fossil fuels.

You are invited to read the open letter from WONCA and consider participating.

ANZCA remains steadfast in its commitment to minimise the health impacts of climate change (see PS64: Position statement on environmental sustainability and pain medicine practice 2019) and acknowledges the adverse environmental effects of fossil fuels. As a result ANZCA Council has resolved to divest from fossil fuels and increase our support for renewable energy sources to promote a more environmentally friendly college (see the final report of the Environmental Sustainability Working Group).
Find out more about ANZCA's environmental sustainability initiatives and join our Environmental Sustainability Network.
