At Elanco, we focus on two causes - Food Security and the Human-Animal Bond. They are an opportunity to live out our vision of Food and Companionship Enriching Life every day. Our cause-driven strategy engages employees, connects with the communities where we live and work, and aims to provide global sustainable solutions.
Our Food Security cause works to ensure nutritious food is accessible and affordable to all through hunger-related initiatives that help break the cycle of hunger for thousands of people around the world. Our work is made possible through partnerships with Heifer International and United Way Worldwide. As we draw attention to the issue of Food Security through ENOUGH movement, a global community working together to ensure everyone has access to nutritious, affordable food.
Today, we are working to:
We celebrate the benefits of pets in our daily lives through increased access, interactions and global programs that celebrate the bond.
Pets enrich our lives through companionship, the service they provide and the proven health and social benefits to people and communities. At Elanco, we advocate for the health benefits pets bring to people by supporting and highlighting the research that proves pets are good for us and our communities. And we support the animals that support us - from assistance and therapy animals to search, rescue, and police dogs.
We work to achieve this through partnerships with therapy and service organizations, such as Pet Partners and Canine Assistants, and in coordination with our veterinary customers’ programs.
Each year, Elanco joins forces with our parent company, Lilly, to dedicate a full day to volunteering in our communities, called the Global Day of Service. It’s one of the largest single-day corporate volunteer programs in the world. Thousands of employees join local partners and community groups to support a wide variety of initiatives. Whether beautifying city streets, collecting food or building homes for families in need, or caring for animals at local shelters, we take pride in giving back to our neighbors. Employees are also provided with a half-day per quarter of paid time off to serve their communities in a cause that aligns to their personal interests.
