Our Journey Towards Sustainability Leadership

Every day, we live our sustainability strategy through three pillars: focusing on people, customers, and communities; being trustworthy corporate citizens; and safeguarding the planet for future generations. These pillars focus our action as we strive to become sustainability leaders in our sector and beyond.

In partnership with our customers, we:

  • Go Beyond local and regional actions, driving a strategic global sustainability programme and safeguarding our planet for future generations to come
  • Go Beyond the standard stakeholder requirements and expectations whenever we can, striving for excellence in our own operations through clear and transparent reporting, embracing change, and future-proofing our business through responsible practices. This is how we will make a meaningful difference for ourselves, our planet, and future generations while ensuring a healthy business. Our ESG committee reviews our sustainability goals regularly and assesses if and how targets can accelerate.
  • Go Beyond what we can achieve as a company by inviting our employees and customers to take action with us, in both a personal and professional capacity
  • Go Beyond the impact we can achieve as an organisation by establishing impactful grassroots partnerships and developing philanthropic initiatives to bring better health and well-being to communities all around the world. 

To achieve this, we have:

  • Become a founding partner of FDI World Dental Federation’s “Sustainability in Dentistry” partnership, and
  • Signed a new, 5-year, renewable, flagship, charitable partnership with Smile Train.
