PSC Accreditation Requirements
PSC is the only accreditation in the pet industry that measures and verifies your sustainable business operations. When you pursue accreditation, you are evaluated on your social and environmental impact initiatives through a third-party assessment. You must achieve a minimum score on the assessment and answer your questions with accuracy to earn the accredited status.
Why Become Accredited
Establish Credibility with Employees
Demonstrate to your employees that you are taking action on your sustainability claims. The accreditation allows you to track and communicate progress to your team.
Attract the Best Talent
80 percent of Millennials said they “would be more motivated and committed at work if they felt their employer made a positive impact on society” in a 2020 Deloitte Study.
Formalize your Sustainability Commitments
Through the third-party assessment, learn where your business excels and how you can document your actions.
