RESPONSIBILITY
Corporate responsibility stretches beyond sustainability - it now
encompasses employee, community and pet-related programs.
Protecting the planet
When it comes to corporate responsibility from an environmental
standpoint, sustainability initiatives lead the
way. Corporations need to consider environmental impacts
when it comes to the resources they use - such as
energy, land and water usage - as well as how their products
and services impact the planet.
" Purina's goal is to help create a healthier planet, so
people and pets can enjoy everything it has to offer for
many more years to come, " said Joe Toscano, vice president,
trade and industry development at Nestlé Purina,
St. Louis, Mo.
In 2022, more than 80% of electricity used at Purina
factories came from renewable sources. The company is
working toward a goal of using 100% renewable electricity
across all manufacturing facilities by 2025.
Purina also has lofty goals when it comes to the reduction
of greenhouse gas emissions - to achieve net
zero emissions by 2050.
" Through the initiatives in each step of our process
- from ingredient sourcing to how our food is made
and how our products are packaged - we are continuously
working to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, "
Toscano explained.

Being a responsible corporate citizen is a common goal
of organizations all over the globe. The reference to this
responsibility is often highlighted in corporate mission
statements, but the exact meaning of that responsibility
varies from one corporate entity to the next.
There is not one definition and not one mission when
it comes to corporate responsibility, just a consensus that
it's a crucial part of doing business today.
" Everything we do comes back to our purpose and
our work to enrich lives of our colleagues, the people in
our supply chains,
the communities in which we operate,
and the countless consumers around the globe who
depend on our products every day, " said Alison Taylor,
chief sustainability officer at Chicago-based ADM.
Planet, people, communities - and in this industry,
pets - are all part of corporate responsibility programs
for today's pet food industry stakeholders.

Tenn., and its St. Charles, Mo.-based Royal Canin division
include ingredient sourcing, responsible production
practices and sustainable packaging goals. The
company sustainably sources its Omega 3 EPA and DHA
fatty acids from microalgae instead of from fish, and its
production facilities send zero waste to landfills. The
Royal Canin side of the business is on its way to being
carbon neutral by the end of 2025.
On the packaging side, 100% of Mars Petcare's canned
and multipack materials are now recyclable. With the
help of the Pet Sustainability Coalition, Bouder, Colo.,
the company is working toward making 100% of its
packaging recyclable, reusable or compostable.
Purina is also trying to take a more sustainable approach
when it comes to its packaging. Today, nearly
90% of the company's plastic packages are designed
for recycling. The company is also working to lessen
its impact on the planet by encouraging its customers
to recycle their pet food cans, like through its
