Henry Schein Promotes ESG Leadership
Henry Schein, Inc.
Henry Schein, Inc., the world's biggest provider of office-based dental and medical practitioners' health care solutions, announced the release of its 2021 Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report, titled "BOLD Leadership for a Healthier World."
The company's 2021 Sustainability and CSR Report details work done in the previous year to advance its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) stewardship, including expanded ESG disclosures, several distinct health equity initiatives, and ongoing collaborations with business partners and suppliers to address climate change.
As part of the company's efforts to improve ESG transparency, Henry Schein reported on its sustainability initiatives for the first time in 2021 in compliance with Sustainability Accounting Standards Board and Global Reporting Initiative Standards. In addition, Henry Schein released its inaugural Task Force on Climate-Associated Financial Disclosures Report, which outlines the company's governance and related policies for addressing climate risks and opportunities.
Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein, Inc., said:
"Our commitment to the success of our stakeholders—our customers, TSMs, supplier partners, shareholders, and society at large—has long been the foundation of our purpose-driven approach to corporate citizenship and commercial engagement, and continues to inform our bold efforts to create a healthier world.
"Throughout our 90 years in business, we’ve faced many challenges as an industry and a society, and Team Schein remains determined to support our customers and our business through our robust stakeholder engagement model. Henry Schein will continue to pursue our higher ambition as a socially responsible and sustainable organisation while giving back in times of crisis and doing our part to build a healthier future for all.”
Over the last decade, Henry Schein has increased its investment in a more ambitious model of 'ethical capitalism,' formalising its ESG strategy into five focus areas: Empowering Team Schein, Advancing Health Equity, Accelerating Environmental Sustainability, Supply Chain Resilience, and Ethical Governance.
The 2021 Sustainability and CSR report illustrates the ideals developed at the company's inception and how Henry Schein gives back to the professions and communities it serves.
