Putting the planet and members first

Our health is intrinsically linked to the health of our planet. Climate change and pollution increase disease, reduce quality and quantity of life, and pile yet more pressure on health professionals worldwide. That’s why we’re helping to create a greener, safer world for all.

Everything we do, from our eco-initiatives and positive investment practices, to our goal of Net Zero emissions by 2027, is driven by our commitment to members.

A greener future for all

A brighter tomorrow is only possible through what we do today. Every action counts, and we’ll continue to do what we can to help protect the future of our planet.

How we’re putting the planet first

Reducing our consumption and using green energy suppliers to reach Net Zero carbon emissions by 2027.

Restoring threatened tropical habitat with a World Land Trust certification and using carbon-balanced paper for our printed communications.

Switching to digital publications to reduce the environmental impact of production, distribution, and recycling.

Upcycling unused IT equipment with Computer Aid to avoid it going into landfill.

An impactful member fund

We are a mutual society, owned by members who have dedicated their careers to the service of others. They entrust us to hold and grow their subscription monies for the future, and to do so in a way that has a positive impact on our planet and communities. That’s why we’re:

  • investing over £400m in companies that support climate solutions and social initiatives
  • pledging £100m to activities that directly improve the communities and environment we live in, like investing in rural broadband to boost access to education and employment opportunities, and supporting battery development to guarantee a greener, more connected future for all
  • not investing in tobacco, alcohol, weapons and other harmful industries to reflect our members’ values
  • the first dental defence organisation to join the United Nations’ Principles of Responsible Investment – a global network of companies creating change around environmental, social, and governance issues.

A safer world for all

Creating a safer tomorrow

The MPS Foundation is a ground-breaking global not-for-profit research initiative. Through its research work, we are helping find new ways to safeguard the wellbeing of members, our people, and the wider healthcare community – ultimately improving clinician welfare and patient safety.        

Helping members help others in crisis

Many members are committed to using their skills to help those beyond their borders. To support them, we offer indemnity provision against claims and complaints arising from humanitarian work. This gives members the freedom to enhance their international experience and save lives without worry.
