Climate change and environmental pollution are amongst the greatest threats affecting the planet, humanity, and biodiversity. The 2030 United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development,1 adopted in 2015, included an urgent call for action from all sectors and established 17 goals to stimulate efforts over the coming years in areas of critical importance. This agenda is a plan of action for people, planet, and prosperity.

Oral health is an essential part of human life. There is a growing recognition within the oral healthcare community, including clinical professionals and industry, of its responsibility to deliver healthcare and products that improve oral health in a sustainable manner in compliance with United Nations (UN) goals.
