65 of the pet industry’s top leaders and influencers gathered at the Pet Sustainability Coalition‘s first annual Impact Unleashed event last month to take on the topic of sustainability in the industry.
The event, billed as an annual meeting of the brightest figures in the industry to address its biggest opportunities and challenges, provided a chance for individuals — who might normally be competitors — to work collaboratively on the growing issue of sustainability in the pet industry. Specific topics engaged at the event included protein sourcing and human rights violations as a result of forced fishing and other labor, both of which have emerged as especially sensitive issues over the past year.
In the wake of positive responses from attendees, the Pet Sustainability Coalition expects attendance at next year’s Impact Unleashed event to double.
