PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zoetis has been named to Newsweek Magazine's America's Most Responsible Companies 2022 list, which recognizes top-performing companies that are making a difference through their environmental, social and corporate governance actions.

Zoetis is the only standalone animal health company and ranked in the top 14% of all companies listed and the top 25% among Health Care & Life Sciences companies on the list.
