Our Green Journey

Our Green Journey

As a leader in the dental industry, we understand the nature of our business, our role in supply chain and the effect our products can have on the environment. Across Henry Schein Australia we are committed to streamlining our supply chain and embedding sustainability into our ways of working. By collaborating with our customers and partners through Practice Green we will positively impact the future of our planet.

In Australia, we have been impacted by Climate Change and its effect on our environment. With rising temperatures causing increased fire danger in the summer of 2019-20, we experienced the most catastrophic bushfire season followed by devastating floods in 2021-22, leaving a trail of destruction behind for communities.

Our aspiration is to be net zero by 2050
