According to FDI, climate change is a pressing reality affecting both the planet and public health. Every sector and individual has a responsibility to act now to protect the environment and ensure a healthy future for generations to come.

To address this, FDI’s Sustainability in Dentistry project raises awareness about the environmental impact of the dental profession and engages with stakeholders to reduce the ecological footprint of dental interventions.

In particular, the FDI Sustainability in Dentistry Award honours dental teams and individuals who have successfully implemented sustainable initiatives within their practices as Sustainability Champions, providing global recognition for their outstanding efforts.
