Accelerating Environmental Sustainability
We operate a vast network spanning 32 countries and territories, serving more than one million customers worldwide. We run a centralized and automated distribution network with more than 3.8 million square feet of space in 28 strategically located distribution centers around the world. This structure supports our operational efficiency and enables us to serve our customers.
We work to reduce our environmental impact and promote responsible business practices in our own operations and supply chain, in collaboration with our suppliers, partners, and customers. Based on our ability to maximize impact, we focus principally on four environmental areas.
We are committed to climate action and transparency by continuously strengthening our approach to measuring, monitoring, and reporting on our carbon emissions and other environmental impacts. We are committed to Science-Based Targets and to set our science-based net zero target by the end of 2023.
Responsible Use of Water and Reducing Waste
We have limited direct product manufacturing; therefore, our operations are not water-intensive. We use water mainly at our distribution centers and offices for drinking, sanitation, and cooling purposes, primarily from utility sources.
We work to avoid landfilled waste to retain precious raw materials in the economic cycle and prevent soil and water contamination, air pollution, and degradation of nature in and around landfills.
Helping Our Customers Go Green
Scaling the environmental impact downstream in our supply chain by encouraging our customer to go green in their health care practices and adopt a shared commitment to sustainability is another way we are driving impact. We achieve this through several efforts such as our EMEA Practice Green Program, our U.S. based Global Reflections® Program, and the Green Leader Initiative of the American Association of Dental Office Management (AADOM), supported by the Henry Schein Cares Foundation.
Henry Schein aims to encourage communities to become more eco-friendly by providing solutions to support, educate, and enhance the environmental sustainability efforts of our customers through our global environmental sustainability program, Practice Green.
