As a membership association AUGIS (Association of Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery of Great Britain and Ireland) is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment. Through reducing the environmental impact of its operations by positive action and working with our suppliers and members, AUGIS can work to achieve environmental sustainability as an organisation, which we hope can in turn influence others.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership.
