Henry Schein has signed the Business Ambition for 1.5⁰C Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), committing to set a long-term, science based emissions reduction target to reach net-zero global emissions by 2050.

The Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign encourages companies to set robust emissions reduction targets at the pace and scale required by climate science.

Endorsed by an unprecedented global coalition of UN agencies, business groups, and industry leaders, the campaign provides a coordinated net-zero pathway for
corporate climate leaders.

Stanley Bergman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Henry Schein announced: “Climate change is the most critical sustainability issue of our time. By signing the Business Ambition for 1.5⁰C initiative, Henry Schein is joining corporate leaders worldwide in strengthening and sharpening our approach to measuring, monitoring, and reporting on carbon emissions and other environmental impacts.

"To date, we are focusing on baselining our distribution and transportation metrics in key markets in North America, Europe, and Australia, the results of which
will form the basis for setting our science-based targets in the future, as defined by the SBTi.

“We recognize that with our global environmental footprint and unique position within an ecosystem of relationships with suppliers and business partners, we are uniquely positioned to be a driving force for sustainability in the health care supply chain.

"As part of our climate transparency drive, we support the World Economic Forum (WEF) proposal for companies to set a target to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 or sooner,
and we have joined WEF’s Alliance of CEO Climate Leaders to help lead the global transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy.”
