Accredited companies are sustainably-led and measured businesses that drive positive impact for pets, people and the planet. These companies are meeting consumer demand for actionable and transparent business practices.

Are you ready to hold your business to higher environmental and social impact standards in the communities and environments where you do business? 

Pet Sustainability Accreditation Requirements

PSC offers 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.

Premiere Placement at Pet Sustainability Coalition’s Events

Looking to stand out at PSC’s events attended by 1,000 pet professionals? PSC Accredited Companies are celebrated at the virtual exhibit halls and throughout the events.

Be Considered for the Pet Sustainability Awards

When you achieve accreditation, you are eligible for the Pet Sustainability Awards, which recognize pet suppliers, brands, and manufacturers for their outstanding impact initiatives working towards a more sustainable and equitable pet industry.
