Our Sustainability Commitments, Corporate Responsibility and ESG

At Elanco, our business has always been driven by a greater purpose: a belief that, through animals, we can tackle some of the world's most pressing issues.

Driving Sustainable Change

At Elanco, we believe that healthier animals are part of the solution to some of the world’s most significant challenges. As a leading animal health company, we are focused on making a difference in critical areas, including malnutrition, obesity, social isolation, mental health and climate change. We believe “making life better for animals, makes life better.”

Elanco's sustainability commitments, the first of its kind in the animal health industry, advance the world’s wellbeing while supporting and strengthening our own business. It all starts with a healthy, strong enterprise driven by the growth, innovation and margin expansion agenda we are executing against. Through these efforts, Elanco is focused on creating value for our customers, employees, shareholders and society as a whole.
