The Central and Eastern Sydney PHN acknowledges the scientific evidence for human induced climate change. The consequences include deteriorating population health outcomes and widening inequalities in health, threatening our vision of better health and wellbeing for all.
As one organisation in a wider community acting in the service of humanity, honouring the long standing traditions of the health professions, we call ourselves to action to reduce the suffering caused by climate change, and to decarbonise our operations.
Our contributions will make a difference to the communities we serve and improve opportunities for health across the life-course. We pledge our best efforts to build physical, mental, social, and economic health and to grow resilience in our region, as we fully participate in the unified global effort to both mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Green Practice Checklist
CESPHN has developed a Green Practice Checklist for general practices and allied health services.
The checklist is a self-audit tool that provides an environmental assessment of your workplace. It takes no more than 10 minutes to complete and will recognise your green achievements and identify ways that you could make your practice more sustainable.
The checklist is designed to benefit your patients, your practice and ensure that your business aligns with best-practice green principles.
CESPHN is deeply committed to strengthening the capacity of primary care providers to implement environmentally sustainable practices.
The Green Practice Checklist is one activity CESPHN is undertaking as part of our Climate Change and Population Health Implementation Plan. We are encouraging all practices in their sustainability journey and will provide you with the support and guidance you need.
