Royal Canin to achieve carbon neutral footprint by 2025
Global pet nutrition company Royal Canin has committed to becoming certified carbon neutral by 2025, with its first product range aiming to be certified carbon neutral by 2022. This comes as parent company, Mars Incorporated, announces that it seeks to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across its full value chain by 2050. Royal Canin will deliver the carbon neutral outcome via transitioning to renewable electricity, procuring sustainable ingredients, reducing waste and boosting circularity – such as reusable packaging, along with implementing a climate-smart business transformation.
“As experts in cat and dog nutrition, we have been guided by science for the last fifty years. It is science-led initiatives and decisive action, not just ambition, which will help us hit our 2025 climate target. We believe that making this bold carbon neutral commitment will inspire and mobilise new and impactful ideas, action and results across Royal Canin’s global value chain that help us improve our environmental footprint and make a meaningful positive difference to pets, people and the planet,” said Loic Moutault, President of Royal Canin.
