Our Inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report
Today Covetrus released its first Environmental, Social and Governance report, disclosing the Company’s ESG programs, policies and metrics through the end of 2020. This inaugural report affirms our commitment to providing ethical and sustainable solutions that improve the lives of our employees, customers and partners, while positively impacting the communities we serve.
“Although we are still a young company, ESG is already an important area of focus for our Covetrians around the globe,” says Ben Wolin, Covetrus president and CEO. “We believe supporting our communities and the environment is a critical part of our foundation and our future success. Our commitment to providing ethical and sustainable solutions that help advance veterinary medicine extends to the communities and people we interact with and serve, and our employees.”
- Our Commitment to the Planet
Covetrus has committed to cataloging and benchmarking its environmental footprint. As a multi-national company with an extensive global footprint, building the processes to collect data will enable Covetrus to adapt sustainable models. Covetrus has undertaken a year-long process to evaluate hazardous waste outputs at pharmacy and outsourcing facilities, with the goal of understanding how much waste is produced and how that correlates with specific products.
- Our Commitment to Covetrians
Covetrus is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best talent globally. Inclusion and diversity are an essential part of Covetrus’ corporate strategy that will help shape the company and drive business success. In 2020 Covetrus announced its five Inclusion & Diversity commitments to drive lasting change within the animal-health industry. In 2020 Covetrus launched an Employee Resource Groups program, introduced unconscious bias training and made strides towards gender parity.
- Our Commitment to Communities
Covetrus believes in giving back to communities. Whether it is in response to a specific crisis or in support of a good cause, Covetrus regularly donates products, financial resources and time to universities, shelters, and other non-profit organizations. In early-2020, Covetrus worked with the Arizona Together Initiative to donate more than 6,000 medical-use containers of hand sanitizer, distributed to medical personnel and community organizations serving vulnerable communities.
