With ZIWI’s mission of “providing peace of mind to pet guardians around the world,” the company knew that to do so, it needed to mind its environmental impact. ZIWI has already taken many steps to doing just that, with utilizing ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients in its recipes, partnering with farmers and suppliers committed to free-range farming practices and implementing sustainable practices in its new super-kitchen Awatoto in Napier, New Zealand. ZIWI is excited about the next step towards furthering its mission while becoming the best environmental stewards it can be, by joining the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) as a Guardian level member.
With this membership to the PSC, ZIWI is guided by the coalition, with being informed, inspired and accelerated in its sustainability journey. This provides the company with a wealth of resources to implement into its practices alongside performance assessments and recommendations so it may chart its sustainability roadmap and visualize the progress it is making.
The PSC embraces the vision of a thriving and collaborative pet industry that creates positive impact for the communities and environments where business is conducted with a mission of advancing business through profitable environmental and social practices. They hold their members and own team accountable to certain sustainable standards and promote continual improvements to be made as the industry evolves.
ZIWI takes its environmental impact very seriously and is the heart and soul of its new super-kitchen, Awatoto. This new kitchen features recycled and reclaimed wood furnishing, water collection systems to water and regrow nearby vegetation and replanted native foliage to encourage repopulation of endangered birdlife, bees and insects. In addition, ZIWI has also added solar panels and innovative technology that cleans and purifies the air from air dryers, ensuring they are free from odors and contaminants. This is just the start to a more sustainable step forward in efforts to minimize ZIWI’s environmental impact, and the company excited to partner with the PSC to help along the way.
