Lean and Green in 2015

Our vision for Lien Animal Clinic is to be the best veterinary clinic in Seattle by:

Providing progressive, thorough, and thoughtful medical and surgical care while serving as our patients' advocates.

Nurturing the human-animal bond.

Striving to work within client constraints and focusing on providing exceptional, empathetic customer service and education.

Re-evaluating accepted norms in a way that rewards innovation and applauds learning.

Cultivating a positive impact on the global community.

Incorporating our core values into our day to day practice life.

Empowering each other with trust and respect in an open, fun, and family oriented environment.

As part of cultivating a positive impact on the global community, the theme for some of our clinic goals this year is “Lean & Green in 2015”.  Some of the things we are implementing this year are:

Composting food waste.
Switching our cleaning products to more environmentally friendly products.
Increasing our recycling efforts.
Implementing an employee gift matching program for charitable giving.
Encouraging health and fitness in our staff with more staff “fun runs/walks” and providing support for staff who wish to quit smoking.

In recognition of our efforts to be greener, Lien Animal Clinic has received 5 Star Certification from the EnviroStars Program.   5 Star Certification is the highest level of certification and is reserved for
businesses that are proactive leaders in environmental stewardship and greener practices.  To learn more about the EnviroStars Program and view a directory of EnviroStars businesses, go to www.envirostars.org.
