We can take care of our planet while taking care of our pets.

OUR PURPOSE

The Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) was founded in 2013 as the only independent, not-for-profit organization bringing together a coalition of pet companies who are committed to integrating environmental and social practices. PSC is uniquely positioned to serve as the epicenter of collaborative solutions by bringing together competitors at the same table to work towards scalable industry-wide change.

THE CHALLENGE

Pets bring us joy and are much loved members of many families yet it lags behind in making sustainable changes that make a long-term impact on the environment.

  • More than 300 million pounds of non recyclable packaging is created by the US pet industry each year.
  • Pet food accounts for an estimated 25% of the total animal proteins consumed in the U.S. creating approximately 64 million tons of CO2- equivalent greenhouse gasses.
  • The pet industry is estimated to double by 2030, intensifying our impact and need for change.

OUR ACHIEVEMENTS

Sustainable Ingredients

PSC developed an industry leading framework to unify the industry toward a common definition and approach to sustainable ingredient sourcing.

Sustainable Packaging

PSC’s collaborative efforts include our return to retail pilot that collected more than 8,000 lbs of used, hard-to-recycle pet food and treat bags at 100+ retail locations with over 75 brands participating. A national expansion would feasibly divert over 3 million pounds of pet food packaging from landfills, offering a bridge solution for today’s packaging while also supporting the pet industry to make a needed transition toward recyclable, refillable, or compostable packaging.

Corporate Social Responsibility

PSC has developed a suite of business tools to advance companies toward diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces. In 2020, PSC inspired more than 8,000 actions to educate and catalyze pet industry professionals about critical DEI issues, allyship, and environmental justice.
