Second "Purina in Society Report" shows Purina's achievements in creating shared value for pets, people and the planet
Nestlé Purina PetCare EMENA [NPPE] has launched its second "Purina in Society (PinS) Report" to provide a transparent account of progress against its commitments and prepared in accordance with the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards at the Core option.
The first Purina in Society Report, published in 2017, shared how Purina's purpose to create richer lives for pets and the people who love them inspired the company to create 10 commitments to improve the health and well-being of pets, people and the planet. Now, in this second report, Purina shares examples from some of the countries where it operates across Europe and their impact in local communities.
Purina's commitments and their impact focus on three different areas -in alignment with its parent company Nestlé: individuals and families -and their pets, our communities and the planet. Purina also contributes to Nestlé's ambition and commitments.
Since 2014, Purina has launched 23 new products to improve the health and wellbeing of pets. Since 2015, the company has championed pet adoption initiatives in 15 countries and partnered with 43 organisations, established Nestlé and Purina pet-friendly offices in 22 countries, signed 62 alliances for its Pets at Work programme and educated 823,739 children on responsible pet ownership in 9 countries.
To improve the environmental performance of its packaging, Purina has avoided the use of 3,542 tonnes of packaging materials. The company has also established guidelines on responsible sourcing and now 100% of its soya is traceable and 79% is responsibly sourced.
Bernard Meunier, CEO at NPPE, has expressed his gratitude: "Our Purina in Society Report 2018 shares the significant contribution that colleagues and partners have made to our commitments. We do want to increase and speed up our impact. Therefore, we invite you to continue working with us to create a society that truly is better with pets."
To celebrate the report's launch, Purina ran a contest for employees to share their personal contribution to the commitments. The winner's picture is featured on the front cover of the report and shows Lajos Hanzel, from Nestlé Purina Hungary, and his dog Tapi. They are ambassadors for "Young at heart" pet adoption in Hungary.
