At Dentsply Sirona technical and ecological advances go hand in hand and represent an integral part of our corporate culture. We have a long history of supporting the communities in which we live, work and serve, and are dedicated to continually evolving and improving our efforts for corporate responsibility and sustainability.
Dentsply Sirona remains committed to minimizing our environmental impact in every location where we conduct business. We support and promote recycling, energy and natural resource conservation. Our product development process involves rigorous testing and consideration for environment impact. Using Dentsply Sirona’s digital x-ray units not only reduces a patient’s exposure to radiation by up to 70%, but also eliminates the need to develop film using toxic chemicals in the dental office. Moreover, our manufacturing plants are maintained with the environment in mind. Several of our facilities across the U.S. and Europe have energy efficient infrared heaters, high efficiency chiller systems and closed loop water cooling systems to significantly reduce water and energy usage. Additionally, several of our facilities are obtaining energy from renewable sources, including wind and solar. This provides a view into our cost efficiency and greenhouse gas emission opportunities. All of these efforts - and more - are aimed at reducing materials consumption and waste, and reflect our commitment in making Dentsply Sirona a responsible and environmentally conscious corporate organization.
As with the environment, we place great emphasis on safety in the workplace and have high standards when it comes to making sure all possible steps are taken in guaranteeing the health and safety of our employees. Our goal is to protect the lives and health of our employees and surrounding communities. To achieve this goal, our employees receive safety training and we conduct annual Environmental, Health and Safety audits in our manufacturing facilities. We work with regulatory bodies to ensure compliance with all safety standards.
