The Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) is excited to announce our newest group of top performers to be highlighted at PSC Booth #3775 at SuperZoo.
The PSC’s mission is to advance business through profitable environmental and social practices. We invite all Pet Industry businesses into our organization, regardless of where they are in their sustainability journey. The PSC Accreditation exists for those companies who meet minimum sustainability performance and are ready to share a transparent and third-party verified assessment of their impact and commitment to continuous improvement with their stakeholders. Accredited companies align their sustainability practices with the globally recognized Sustainable Development Goals. Alignment with these goals ensures that companies are working towards outcomes that are universally recognized as optimal and can be tracked and measured for desired impact.
In order to reduce the environmental impact of their business operations, companies must:
- Understand where they are today
- Set science-based targets for reduction
- Develop strategies to achieve their targets
- Monitor their progress and re-evaluate strategies as needed
Each company that achieves the PSC Accreditation chooses an environmental focus area and a social focus area. The awards were given to companies based on their scores in these areas.
The Earth Defenders are the top ten scoring Accredited companies in their environmental area of focus. The goals evaluated for environmental top scores include:

A key area for managing sustainability for retailers and their customers is through product selection and supply chain influence. The majority of a retailer’s environmental and social impact is through what they offer on their shelves. PSC accreditation provides a lens throughout the supply chain for understanding which companies are prioritizing positive impact for pets, people, and planet.
We encourage IndiePet and other sustainability-minded retailers to join us at the PSC Booth #3755 for the opportunity to learn more about Accredited brands and how their products can move forward your sustainability impact.
