Aarti became the first RCGP faculty climate & sustainability lead in 2017 and helped to write the climate emergency motion passed by the RCGP council in 2019. She currently co-chairs the RCGP Climate Emergency Advisory Group and in September 2020 became a nationally elected representative to the RCGP Council. Aarti has worked closely with the RCGP, British Medical Association GP committee, Greener NHS and NHSE Primary Care Team to develop strategy for net-zero primary care. Aarti is currently working with the Health Foundation on a quality improvement toolkit on better and greener asthma care.

She has contributed to the RCGP planetary health curriculum for GP registrars, an award winning course on Planetary Health for Health Education England, Yorkshire and Humber and the Sustainable Primary Care course at CSH. Her curricular innovations and research in undergraduate medical education have focussed on diversity and person-centred practice.
