Several years ago the employees of our company created and endorsed the phrase “Devoted to Pets, People & the Planet” as our motto. The care and protection of our planet is essential if we want our children and our pets to enjoy this beautiful world in the future. We support The Pet Industry Sustainability Coalition for bringing together other companies that uphold the same goals we embrace and for charting a roadmap of working together toward sustainability.

As the Outdoor Industry Association Sustainability Working Group continues to advocate for convergence around tools, we are looking forward to providing the pet products industry with guidance around how it might utilize the Higg Index framework to benchmark and measure the sustainability of its products, brands, and manufacturing facilities. We look forward to collaborating with the Pet Industry Sustainability Coalition on this effort.
