Based on our belief that healthier animals are essential to a healthier future, we will continue to use our expertise in animal health to help solve sustainability challenges facing animals and people. With at least 75% of emerging infectious diseases having an animal origin, including COVID-19, the important connection between animal health and human health is more apparent than ever before.

To further help our livestock customers, who have already made great strides in efficiency and how they care for their animals and the land, meet their sustainability goals and consumers’ expectations, we are committed to discovering, developing and commercializing innovations that increase productivity, enhance animal welfare, and help preserve and protect our environment.

We are committed to the following targets, in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health & Wellbeing, Gender Equality, Climate Action, Life on Land, and Partnership for the Goals.

We will continue to evaluate and update our targets as needed.
