Royal Canin to become certified carbon neutral by 2025.

Exciting news for our member Royal Canin!

<< The global pet food brand has committed to become certified carbon neutral by 2025. Its first product range will be certified already by 2022.

The company plans to use the PAS 2060 standard for carbon neutrality, a robust and internationally recognized standard, and the brand will report transparently and regularly on its journey.

Loic Moutault, President of Royal Canin, says: “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 mobilize new and impactful ideas, action and results across our global value chain that will help us improve our environmental footprint and make a meaningful positive difference to pets, people and the planet.”

How?

The four action areas Royal Canin will take to be carbon neutral by 2025 are as follows:

  • Transitioning to renewable electricity
  • Procuring sustainable ingredients
  • Reducing waste and boosting circularity
  • Climate-smart business transformation, like linking executives pay to climate actions and delivering emissions cuts

For any residual emissions that Royal Canin cannot completely remove or reduce, the brand will invest in high-quality, removals–based certified carbon credits.

Fabrice Mathieu, Global Sustainability Director at Royal Canin, said: “We consider carbon neutrality a necessity for future generations, and it is our responsibility to contribute to this effort. We know this journey won’t be easy, but we’re committed to taking action to reduce our footprint and making the investments needed together with partners across our value chain worldwide”. >>
