This initiative is part of the larger efforts of Mars Veterinary Health to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our impact
on climate change.
VCA Works to Lower GHG Emissions
We’ve always understood that the impact we have goes well beyond the animals we care for—it includes reducing our impact on the planet. It’s part of the obligation we have of taking care of the future of veterinary medicine and part of how we contribute to the Mars Veterinary Health's sustainability efforts, to strengthen our collective environmental impact in three key areas: Climate Change, Waste Reduction and Pharmaceutical Stewardship.
In support of this commitment, VCA consolidated delivery of supplies to our hospitals, yielding a reduction in container use by almost 18% and greenhouse gas emissions by 179 metric tons of CO2 equivalent in 2020 alone.
In partnership with sustainability consultants Quantis, we’re evaluating our waste production and environmental impact to identify additional opportunities to reduce even further.
