You love your pets and you want a safe and clean environment where you can play together for years to come. And so do we. That’s why Purina is not only committed to the quality, safety and health of our pets, but also to our planet.
When it comes to sustainable business practices this means we source ingredients responsibly, continuously work to reduce our energy, water, and waste from our operations, optimize our packaging and transport our products using highly efficient methods.


We Have Big Global Sustainability Goals for 2020
Sustainability - Zero Waste To Landfill
Sustainability - Water Reduction
Sustainability - Greenhouse gases

Nestlé Purina believes corporate sustainability means we need to do our part to reduce our environmental impact every day. To support Nestle’s Global goals, at Purina Headquarters and across our 20+ manufacturing facilities in the United States, we’re taking positive steps to be good stewards of the water we use, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize waste. Here’s what we’re working towards:

Zero Waste In 2020

We’ve committed to send zero waste to landfills. We’ve already made great progress toward this commitment.

Responsible Energy Use

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions means we use cleaner fuels
and continually look for ways to source renewable electricity.

Sustainability - Energy Use
32% of our electricity in the U.S. comes from renewable sources such as solar, hydro power, and by purchasing renewable energy credits.

Carbon Neutral Shipping For Select Products
We're proud to partner with sustainable companies, like UPS® to pave the way for carbon neutral shipping for all Purina for Professionals™, veterinary clinic orders and online store orders delivered by UPS. Learn more about their carbon offset program here.
Co2 Reduced
Our partnership with UPS has helped reduce 8,515 Metric Tons of CO2 Emissions since the start of the program in 2015.  This is equivalent to 10,029 acres of U.S. forests in one year.
Sustainability packaging
We pride ourselves on using packaging that maintains the integrity of our products while also having a low impact on the environment.  Recycling 75% of all aluminum cans would keep 11.8 million metric tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere.

Purina’s wet food can products are easily recyclable as they are made from either aluminum or steel (“tin”). Both metals are recyclable but aluminum can be recycled endlessly resulting in a huge decrease in waste that ends up in landfills.

Look for the How2Recycle icon to help you recycle your cans.
