The Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) community expanded in May with the addition of Canidae. The Connecticut based company joined PSC as an Icon member--the highest membership level in the organization. “This is an exciting moment on our journey to create a world of sustainable goodness for pets and our planet,” said Dana Paris, Canidae chief marketing officer.
“Canidae has been known in the pet industry for its sustainable approach, so it was a strong match to have them step into PSC at a leadership level. We are particularly excited about their support of regenerative agricultural practices and look forward to working with this industry leader,” said Anne Klein, diirector of member services, PSC.
Icon members are leaders whose investment in PSC helps advance their company’s environmental and social performance while also being important contributors to PSC’s work on major systemic issues facing the pet industry. Canidae’s increased engagement will provide PSC with support to help advance its industry-wide priorities, which include sourcing sustainable ingredients, sustainable packaging and promoting a more diverse, equal and inclusive world.
“Our mission to do the right thing for pets and for our planet is what inspires our commitment to regenerative agriculture, sustainable ingredients and planet-friendly operations. We’re excited to join in PSC’s ambition to create a more sustainable pet industry and partner with them to accelerate our sustainability roadmap,” said Bret Furio, Canidae CEO.
