Top 20 Celebration w/WPA365

November 17,

With as much as a 5 percent sales bump for companies that market their sustainability efforts (Nielsen), many pet companies tout sustainability as a cornerstone of their values and operations. But few ground their promises with action. The Positive Impact Accreditation Program cuts through the greenwashing by requiring a third-party assessment and verification and annual improvement. In partnership with WPA, this virtual event will celebrate PSC’s 2020 top performing brands and suppliers and inspire you with share-worthy stories of how they are redefining business success to drive impact for pets, people, and planet.

Impact Unleashed

Impact Unleashed is the only 2-day event in the pet industry that inspires and equips leaders to meet growing demand for sustainable products and companies. Highly rated as one of the industry’s best events, attendees can expect world-renowned keynote speakers, workshops, networking, and new virtual exhibit hall.

Sustainability drives a business’ profitability but more often than not organizations are scared to embrace what they see as a complex undertaking. We are very excited to be part of a coalition that will help educate organizations in the pet industry and bring them all the resources they need to create and implement a sustainability program.

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.
