We strive to make a positive impact—now and in the future by exercising wise stewardship of natural resources and doing our part to help communities thrive.
A More Sustainable Future
As resources and land become scarce, Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health is committed to making a positive impact now and in the future.
From reducing our carbon footprint, to saving electricity and water, we are dedicated to providing a more sustainable future for all people and animals.
Going Carbon Neutral
Our site in Gainesville, Ga., is on track to become carbon neutral. To help reduce emissions and fight climate change...
...we installed solar panels, energy-efficient light bulbs and occupancy sensors to turn off the lights in unoccupied rooms. We also installed an electric vehicle charging station and have taken numerous other steps to conserve water and electricity in Gainesville, where we manufacture poultry vaccines shipped to 60 countries. It’s part of a broader commitment to environmental sustainability in the U.S. and around the world. Learn More
Embracing Renewable Energy
Wind energy powers our largest U.S. manufacturing site, in St. Joseph, Mo., a sign of our commitment to...
...global environmental sustainability. Wind energy provides all electricity used at the site, where we employ nearly 1,000 people who manufacture vaccines for horses, pigs, cattle and other animals. Boehringer Ingelheim and its predecessor companies have manufactured animal health products in St. Joseph for more than a century. The change will reduce carbon emissions at the site by 76 percent as part of a broader company commitment to sustainability.
A Global Focus
As a family-owned business, we think in generations, and operating sustainably is a major focus of our business...
We feel responsible for our communities and respect our resources. We envision a healthy planet – by improving human, animal and environmental health. Safeguarding our planet is at the heart of everything we do. In terms of protecting the environment, our “Be Green – Future by Choice” initiative has successfully reduced Boehringer Ingelheim’s energy use, water consumption and emissions. Learn More
Our Culture of Giving Back
We give back in a variety of ways, from employees helping Nebraska cattle ranchers clean up after a flood to our global donation of millions of dollars to fight COVID-19. Our employees foster dogs and cats and help build animal shelters. We support therapeutic horseback riding lessons, pet adoption centers and science fairs. We also donate vaccines, parasite-control products and therapeutics to help animals in need—and give back in many other ways.
The BI Cares Foundation
Since 2001, the Boehringer Ingelheim Cares Foundation, an independent nonprofit, has provided millions of dollars to support communities aligned with its mission
to improve the health and lives of people and animals. Near the U.S. headquarters of Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health in Duluth, Ga., the foundation has supported animal services and adoption opportunities. The foundation also has funded equine-assisted therapy and a nonprofit that relies on service dogs to help former members of the U.S. military. Learn more.
Supporting Greater Good Charities
We work with Greater Good Charities to donate products to animal shelters, including after natural disasters. We also collaborated with Greater Good Charities to donate 60,000 doses
of rabies vaccine to fight disease in Puerto Rico, and to help spay and neuter tens of thousands of animals. In addition, our employees have volunteered with Rescue Rebuild, a program of GreaterGood.org, to help build and re-build several U.S. animal shelters.
Other Charitable Initiatives
We are proud to do our part to fight problems like hunger and breast cancer. We lent a hand to farmers and ranchers recovering from floods and U.S. service members
recovering from injuries. For several years, for example, our business provided financial support to Warrior Canine Connection, a nonprofit that helps military veterans by working with them to train service dogs. Our employees walked miles to raise money for breast-cancer research. We also provided meals to first responders and helped in innumerable other ways.
How Our Employees Care
At Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health, our culture of giving back comes to life through the actions of our people, who regularly volunteer time and skills to the causes they are passionate about.
