Pet Sustainability Coalition Members Now Have Access to a Sustainable Package Analysis Platform

January 17, 2018

The Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) announced a new partnership with Trayak, a software solutions company, to provide Coalition members with access to EcoImpact, the nation’s leading sustainable package and product platform. The platform provides Comparative Packaging Assessment (COMPASS) using streamlined lifecycle assessments. Using COMPASS, PSC members can analyze individual, primary, secondary, transport packages and entire packaging systems to make better packaging design decisions that meet corporate sustainability goals.

“COMPASS has recently been listed in Walmart’s Sustainable Packaging Playbook as a way for suppliers to track and reduce their carbon footprint and our members have already noted considerable financial savings from using the tool,” said Caitlyn Dudas, Executive Director, PSC.

COMPASS is the most recent strategic partnership for PSC, an organization dedicated to bringing vetted tools to the pet industry. COMPASS will help PSC members incorporate environmental feedback in the early design process when considering different materials and concepts. This transparency will lead to better packaging decisions and measurable progress towards sustainability goals.

“With EcoImpact-COMPASS, we’ve created an application that can and should be used to evaluate every design to make sure it aligns with a company’s long term vision. No matter where a company is in its sustainability journey, they will find value in having an accessible tool that can be used to advance their sustainability initiatives.” Said Prashant Jagtap, founder, president and CEO of Trayak.
