Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Sustainability

Our global approach to ESG and sustainability – Elanco’s Healthy Purpose™ – is a framework of commitments and actions built on four interconnected pillars: Healthier Animals, Healthier People, Healthier Planet and Healthier Enterprise – which represent the areas we believe are most important to our customers, employees, investors and other stakeholders. We’re driving a Healthier Enterprise by managing our environmental footprint and integrating the management and oversight of ESG issues throughout our operations.
