Sustainability (ESG)

Creating a global sustainability leader in animal health

Vimian and our family of businesses share a fundamental belief that the strategic and effective management of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities are critical to create long-term value for societies and stakeholders alike.


A sustainable purpose and business idea

Our products and services help prevent and monitor zoonotic diseases (Disease transmitted from animals to humans, i.e. covid-19), enables responsible use of antibiotics and improve health and wellbeing among animals and the people who care for them. At Vimian we aim to further accelerate our positive impact and minimise negative footprints. In the beginning of 2022, Vimian defined a long-term strategic ambition to create a global sustainability leader in animal health.

Sustainability strategy

The purpose of the sustainability strategy is to guide the operating segments and entrepreneurs in the Group to accelerate innovation and sustainable long-term growth, while retaining their autonomy. The strategy sets a shared vision and ambition for the Group, provides a common platform for the follow-up of performance while ensuring the independence of the individual businesses to define which initiatives that will be most impactful for them.

Building the foundation

As a newly formed group in 2021, Vimian’s initial focus is to build a solid foundation for sustainable development and reporting.  To reach our long-term ambition we have divided our sustainability work into three horizons. 


Becoming the most attractive employer in animal health

Extraordinary businesses are built by extraordinary people and Vimian’s employees are the Group’s most important asset to drive growth and create value.



Increasing animal welfare and reducing antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

There is a close link between animal and human health, for example, using diagnostics to prevent zoonosis. Further, several studies have demonstrated a positive connection between pets and the physical and mental health of their owners. Across Vimian Group, we share a passion for making a positive impact through the improvement of animal health and welfare. 



Towards net-zero climate impact across the value chain

As a global group we have a responsibility to address the climate impact of our direct and indirect operations, including helping to meet the targets set by United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
