Jessica Meisinger, Ph.D. : LEADING THE NORTH AMERICAN TEAM TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Jessica’s role as North American Sustainability Lead at Merck Animal Health involves coordinating a taskforce dedicated to environmental stewardship, animal health and sustainability. Her passion for sustainability and animal health goes hand-in-hand and at Merck Animal Health she is able to further both causes simultaneously. Animal health is linked to sustainability, especially when you consider the following areas: growth, reproduction, quality and death. For example, a healthy animal provides more output to the community and ecosystem with less strain on environmental resources.
When looking to the future, Jessica is particularly excited about Merck’s aggressive carbon plunge, reduction of packaging, enhanced biosecurity from innovative vaccines, and an inclusive workforce focusing on bringing all voices to the table.
“Animal health is so intrinsically tied to sustainability – we can’t have one without the other. That’s why at Merck Animal Health, our goal is to be the best in both.”
