Booth #665 – Your one stop shop for all things sustainability – Accredited Brands

The Pet Sustainability Coalition’s booth at Global Pet Expo features products from companies that have achieved the Pet Sustainability Accreditation. Accredited companies have assessed the impact of their business operations, undergone a rigorous third-party verification process, and are committed to annual improvement. This year’s product selection is focused on two key areas of impact. The Earth Defenders are companies that performed well in natural resource management including greenhouse gas management, water, and the use of environmentally preferable materials. The Social Stewards are people champions, they pay a living wage and have formal policies that protect the rights of all employees. Retailers come by the booth for an efficient way to find verified sustainable brands that will meet growing consumer demand. Download the Accredited Sustainable Brands Booklet
