The British Dental Association (BDA) are calling for dental professionals to share their ideas about reducing carbon emissions.
The NHS is ramping up efforts to achieve ‘Net Zero’ and improve the health system’s sustainability.
Consequently, it is calling for any evidence, case studies, data, ideas and research that will help to expand its knowledge and pinpoint new opportunities for a better carbon footprint.
This follows a number of moves that have been taken by other health and care industries to clamp down on ecologically harmful practice.
For example, Great Ormond Street Hospital saved 21 tonnes of plastic and £90,000 by reducing the use of plastic gloves.
Following this pledge, the BDA encourages dentists and their teams to contribute towards these efforts for a greener NHS.
The deadline for the online submission of all ideas and contributions is Sunday 22 March.
