About the Sustainable Nephrology ('SNAP') Committee

OUR VISION: Kidney and planetary health through sustainable nephrology practice

OUR MISSION: To educate, innovate, and advocate for sustainable kidney care

Welcome to the Canadian Society of Nephrology's Sustainable Nephrology Action Planning ('SNAP') webpage.

The SNAP committee is comprised of a country-wide group of providers dedicated to aligning kidney care with planetary health principles, thereby advancing patient care within a framework of environmental sustainability.

We intend to change nephrology clinical practice in Canada through education, development and incorporation of efficiencies in care pathways, advising and informing regarding environmentally preferable procurement, equipment, and infrastructure, and advocating for funding and policy alternatives in kidney care provision.

These plans reflect our vision to realize 'kidney and planetary health through sustainable nephrology practice', and mission 'to educate, innovate, and advocate for sustainable kidney care'.

Please feel free to share ideas or insights in sustainable kidney care with SNAP by contacting the SNAP committee at snap@csnscn.ca.
