Sustainability at Silverchain involves using our resources as efficiently as possible, while continuing to provide high quality, safe care.

We want to be mindful of our impact on the environment as we support the health and ageing needs of our clients and communities.

We will measure and report on our sustainability and improve our performance from our continued learning.

Environmental Leadership

We are committed to environmental justice and recognise that all people have the right to a safe and thriving planet, today and tomorrow.

Our commitment outlines four key focus areas in delivering a greener future:

  • Emission reduction
  • Transport and travel
  • Waste management
  • Environmental data management system.

Our Baseline Impacts

We undertook an assessment of our impacts before developing this strategy to ensure our focus would be on the issues that matter most for us. We engaged Edge Environment to establish our baseline impacts.

This involved the collation of existing data to determine a high-level carbon footprint for our organisation and our data gaps.
