PSC accredited companies are sustainably-led and measured businesses that drive positive impact for pets, people and the planet. In 2021, consumers are more interested than ever in companies’ supply chains and ingredient sourcing. 

Are you ready to act on your claims about transparency and show  buyers that you hold your supply chain to higher environmental and social impact standards? 

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.
