Policy on 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. We support environmentally appropriate business operations while focusing on providing innovative products to meet the growing demand for animal protein in a sustainable way. Further, we work to implement sustainable practices directly into development, manufacture and appropriate use of our products.
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. These help ensure that we operate in environmentally appropriate ways from the beginning of research, to manufacturing and through the entire lifecycle of any given product. Zoetis sites worldwide are actively striving to improve sustainability by reducing water intake, reducing waste, and improving energy efficiency.
In addition to sustainable operations, Zoetis’ commitment to sustainability is focused on discovering and developing innovative solutions to meet the world’s growing demand for protein. By 2050, the world must feed a population estimated to reach 9 billion people which will require almost double the current amount of protein produced. Given land, water and other resources constraints, relying upon today’s farming practices is neither practical nor sustainable. Innovative solutions are required to meet the challenge of the growing demand for animal protein. More meat, milk and eggs from fewer animals results in sufficient animal protein for people without increasing the use of limited resources.
