Key points: 

  • The scientific foundation for environmental sustainability in anaesthesia and critical care has progressed rapidly during the past decade, particularly with the incorporation of environmental life cycle assessments (LCAs).
  • As a result of these new studies, anaesthetists and critical care physicians can make informed choices to reduce their environmental footprint.
  • Translational research on recent environmental footprinting studies into routine anaesthetic/ICU practice is particularly required.
