ESA Sustainability Special Interest Group

This inaugural group will explore ways to implement sustainable practices in Endocrinology. Climate change is impacting human health, and we aim to empower members to make environmentally favourable choices. The group’s scope is broad and may encompass net zero initiatives in clinical practice, prescribing, minimising low value care, ‘greening’ conferences, as well as research and advocacy.   

The ESA sustainability interest group will be structured into various subcommittees. Members are encouraged to bring general ideas to the group and smaller working parties will then be formed, to connect members with shared interests. These subcommittees will report back to the main group in meetings held on-line every two months. Additionally, there may be some follow-up questions and discussions by email. All new members are welcomed!   

Some of the first objectives will be to coin the group’s terms of reference and create a position statement which will define the group’s purpose.   

Inaugural Meeting 2023: October 18th  7pm, via Zoom.  

Please contact the co-chairs or use the Google doc link in the ESA Newsletter for membership enquiries. Please include your suggestions or area of interest.
