Henry Schein champions sustainable business practices with the launch of Practice Green in North America 

April 17, 2023 – In celebration of Earth Day 2023, Henry Schein announced the launch of Practice Green – a global initiative designed to encourage health care practitioners to become more eco-friendly – in the U.S. and Canada. Practice Green aims to help empower the health care community to establish sustainable practices for a healthier planet. 

Through the new program, eco-friendly services, solutions, and support will be available to help dental and medical customers in the U.S. and Canada implement practical ways to become more sustainable while following current health and safety guidelines and providing high-quality care. The program’s offerings will continue to expand over time, with new products, services, and solutions added as Practice Green develops to meet the ever-changing health care landscape. 

The Practice Green portfolio includes a curated collection of dental products selected by Henry Schein as ‘green’ based on supplier partner product information. These ‘green’ products fall into at least one of the following categories: reusable, contain recycled materials, can be recycled, are biodegradable, or are from a sustainable source. Medical products presently are being reviewed for inclusion as part of the portfolio. Click here for a video about the program’s mission. 

In addition to the launch of Practice Green, Henry Schein is celebrating Earth Day by implementing carbon neutral shipping in its U.S. network during the month of April. This aligns with the Company’s commitment to mitigate its impact on the climate, reduce landfill waste, and recycle and reuse valuable materials while practicing smart and efficient use of energy and water resources. 

Henry Schein is continuously strengthening its approach to measuring, monitoring, and reporting on its carbon emissions and other environmental impacts. For example, in 2021, Henry Schein signed the Business Ambition for 1.5⁰C Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), committing to set a long-term, science-based emissions reduction target in order to reach net-zero global emissions by 2050.
