Since its founding in 2013 The Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) has been steadily building a toolkit full of resources, templates, and case-studies coupled with ongoing educational webinars and events. Sustainability is one of the fastest growing topics in the pet industry and PSC leads in topics like sustainable proteins and packaging as well as other compelling business-smart sustainability strategies like employee engagement programs and consumer demand for sustainability.
To increase access to PSC’s tools and expand awareness throughout the global pet food processing industry, PSC and WATT Global Media’s Petfood Industry announce a new 2020 partnership. “Petfood Industry will leverage its global magazine, digital, online and live event platforms to educate and inform our readers about critical sustainability topics affecting pet food production. PSC is the industry’s leader in sustainability, and we are honored to kick off this partnership in 2020,” said Steve Akins, Executive Vice President Global Petfood & Events, and Publisher of Petfood Industry magazine. Petfood professionals throughout the world can expect regular content from PSC as well as a strong presence at Petfood Forum 2020 in Kansas City, Missouri (USA) April 27-29.
From day one, the Pet Sustainability Coalition has maintained a completely open model, choosing not to lock any of its content or tools and instead sharing as much information as possible through its own platform but also among its members. PSC’s media partnerships are no exception to the rule. “Our industry has incredible media groups that have built loyal audiences for decades. Platforms like Petfood Industry are critical avenues to share our educational content and tools particularly with our increased focus on sustainable proteins and packaging.”
