Modern Dental

Modern Dental, renowned for their quality dental prosthetics, approached Dispersed to conduct an in-depth Scope 3 assessment. The question focussed specifically on the environmental footprint of their product distribution network, identifying key areas for improvement.

Challenges and Approach

The main challenge lay in dissecting the complex web of Modern Dental's supply chain, which spanned may different transportation routes and logistics practices across multiple countries. Using the data-driven principles of LCA, we took the following approach:

  1. Mapping the Supply Chain: We conducted a comprehensive mapping of the transportation routes involved in the distribution of Modern Dental's products.

  2. Identifying Key Impact Areas: Through our detailed analysis, we pinpointed the routes and methods contributing most significantly to the overall carbon footprint.

  3. Developing Sustainable Alternatives: In addition to identification of impacts, we suggested alternative routes and shipping methods that can significantly reduce the environmental impacts of distribution.

Results and Impact

Our LCA provided Modern Dental with a detailed view of their Scope 3 emissions, previously a grey area in their sustainability efforts. More importantly, our study offered practical and actionable insights:

  • Reduced Carbon Footprint: Our recommendations, when implemented, have the potential to significantly decrease the carbon footprint of Modern Dental’s distribution network.

  • Sustainable Practices: By adopting alternative routes and shipping methods, Modern Dental can pave the way for environmentally responsible practices in the dental industry.

  • Future-Proofing: Our analysis equips Modern Dental with the knowledge to make more informed, sustainable choices in the future.

Embracing Sustainability

In our collaboration with Modern Dental, we've not only highlighted the importance of comprehensive LCAs in understanding and reducing environmental impacts. This project is a testament to the power of detailed analysis and strategic planning in reducing carbon footprints and promoting eco-friendly practices in the industry. Our work with Modern Dental is just one example of how lifecycle analysis contributes to environmental impact reductions. We look forward to partnering with more companies who are ready to take bold steps towards sustainability.

Join us on our road to net-zero emissions. Together, we can create a more sustainable future!
