The Toolkit was developed as an evolving roadmap, and tool, for pet companies interested in reducing the environmental and social impacts of their products.
Led by Executive Director Caitlyn Bolton, the Toolkit Launch Webinar reviewed the Coalition’s three-part approach to advance sustainability through sharing knowledge, tools, and resources across the industry. Toolkit developer and CEO of Natural Capitalism Solutions Toby Russell familiarized webinar attendees with the Toolkit by reviewing the major sections, ranging from a big-picture roadmap all the way down to the nitty-gritty components like the “quick and dirty audit.”
The Toolkit launch reinforced the Coalition’s strong collaborative values by integrating existing sustainability tools already in the market place, including the Energy Portfolio by Energy Star and the Higg Index by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition and the Outdoor Industry Association.
The Pet Industry Sustainability Coalition strives to be the leading organization for sustainable advancement in the pet industry. We promote creative collaboration throughout the pet industry that prioritizes business minded solutions for sincere environmental improvement.
