Elanco Animal Health Sourced 12% of Power From RE
Elanco Animal Health Incorporated expanded the reporting boundary for Scope 1 and 2 emissions to include all sites for which Elanco has complete operational control and completed a comprehensive analysis of 2021 and 2022 Scope 3 GHG emissions.
An animal health products and services company, Elanco also sourced approximately 12% of electricity from renewable sources in 2022, achieving progress on the company’s goal of 100% renewable electricity by 2030.
Elanco supported reducing customer emissions in livestock production and helped customers avoid an estimated 7.2 million metric tons of CO2e emissions through the use of Rumensin between 2020 and 2022. The company achieved approximately 33% in the attainment of a goal to help Elanco's customers avoid 21 million metric tons of GHG emissions from their farms by 2030.
The company also established a partnership with DSM for exclusive rights to manufacture and sell Bovaer® in the U.S., a product to reduce enteric methane emissions by approximately 30% for dairy cows and even higher percentages for beef cattle.
Details were released in its 2022 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report.
“Healthy animals are essential for a healthy world. This belief is embedded in our vision – Food and Companionship Enriching Life – and is the anchor to Elanco's approach to ESG-related matters and advancing our sustainability goals," said Jeff Simmons, President and CEO of Elanco, in a statement. "This year's report includes examples of our impact as a global organization. For instance, between 2020 and 2022, we've helped beef and dairy customers avoid an estimated 7.2 million metric tons of CO2e emissions by using Rumensin™ – roughly equivalent to taking 1.6 million passenger cars off the road for a year. Additionally, through multiple logistics initiatives, in 2022 we reduced transportation and distribution emissions more than 10% from the prior year.”
