Environmental Sustainability

Zoetis is committed to using the world’s resources wisely and to growing our business in a way that is considerate of the global community.

Environmental sustainability means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Zoetis has established environment, health, and safety procedures and standards that apply to any given product from research and development through commercialization. Zoetis sites worldwide are actively striving to improve sustainability by reducing water intake, reducing waste, and improving energy efficiency. Zoetis is an associate member of the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative (PSCI), a group of pharmaceutical and healthcare companies that promote responsible supply chain management and better business conditions across the industry. Zoetis endorses the PSCI Industry Principles for Responsible Supply Chain Management.

Part of Zoetis’ commitment to sustainability is in innovative solutions to meet the world’s growing demand for protein. By 2050, the world demand for protein is estimated to almost double. Given land, water and other resource constraints, relying upon today’s farming practices is neither practical nor sustainable. Innovative solutions are required to produce more meat, milk, and eggs from fewer animals without increasing the use of our limited resources.

Sustainability in Action at Zoetis

Zoetis operations are conducted in an environmentally responsive manner. Our company standards outline environment, health and safety measures help ensure sustainability from the beginning of research through the entire lifecycle of a product. Zoetis has a company-wide environmental program to assess and pursue opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and products while adding value to our business in the following areas:

  • Energy and greenhouse gas reduction
  • Natural resource conservation and production process improvements
  • Pharmaceuticals in the environment
  • Products and services which would benefit both our customers and Zoetis

This environmental program is endorsed and sponsored by Zoetis management. Our purpose is to develop actionable goals for enhancing our sustainability efforts. We are always looking to improve our overall impact on global sustainability.
