About Us: Social Responsibility


Social Responsibility


Henry Schein founded our Company in 1932 based on the belief that we can fulfill our responsibilities as a corporate citizen by giving back to the industries and communities we serve. Ever since then, we have pursued the ideal of "doing well by doing good." This spirit of corporate citizenship is exemplified through Henry Schein ® Cares, our global corporate social responsibility program. See the newly published Henry Schein Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2015.

Corporate Social Responsibility at Henry Schein has four pillars:

Engaging Team Schein Members
Team Schein Members volunteer thousands of personal hours for community service annually, working alongside customers and suppliers. We invest in our people to help them reach their fullest potential through our emphasis on wellness, training, diversity, and respect for the dignity of the individual.

Ensuring Accountability
We extend ethical business practices to all levels within Henry Schein through our commitment to the highest standards of corporate governance and compliance. Our Worldwide Business Standards define the values and responsibilities that apply to everyone employed by Henry Schein, Inc., and we expect everyone with whom we do business to adhere to those same values. Henry Schein has been ranked by Ethisphere as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies.

Expanding Access to Health Care
We seek to "help health happen" by expanding access to care for at-risk and underserved populations globally through our focus on three areas: 1) wellness, prevention, and treatment; 2) emergency preparedness and relief; and 3) building capacity in the training of professionals and the delivery of health care services.

Promoting Environmental Sustainability
We believe in protecting the health of our planet, and we embrace environmental stewardship through recycling and smarter energy use to decrease the kilowatt-hours per carton at distribution centers and by using many other internal initiatives among our Team Schein Members. Our technicians drive the most fuel-efficient cargo vans available. Through our Global Reflections campaign, we promote products for sale that are environmentally friendly.
