The Pet Industry Sustainability Coalition strives to be the leading organization for sustainable advancement in the pet industry. We promote creative collaboration throughout the pet industry that prioritizes business minded solutions for sincere environmental improvement.

We accelerate environmental and social sustainability in the pet industry through education, implementation tools, and collaboration.

Core Values:
Transparency: As a nonprofit we operate with transparency to our members and to the public so that they can hold us accountable for what we do and how we do it.

Collaboration: We value inclusive collaboration with manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, brands and retailers that leverages existing sustainability knowledge and experience as well as innovating solutions for sustainability issues facing the pet industry.

Authenticity: We know that sincere sustainability means more than marketing and quick wins; we promote continual sustainable improvement that directly reduces the impact of pet products on the global environment and communities.

Implementation Focused: We value genuine sustainability improvement that favors implementation and action-oriented participation by member companies.
