Purina Believes in Changing the Climate—For the Better

Climate change affects us all. That’s why Purina has big climate goals—to improve our present and create a more sustainable future, for all of us. Because current and future generations of people and pets deserve a climate conducive to adventure, play and—most importantly—life.  

By 2030, we plan to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent, achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Net Zero by 2050

As part of Nestlé global Net Zero commitment, by 2030, we plan to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent, achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Here's How

Renewable Electricity in Our Factories

More than 80 percent of our electricity in our factories comes from renewable sources such as solar, hydropower, wind and investments in renewable electricity. We plan to achieve 100 percent by 2025.

Sustainable Logistics & Transportation

We’re partnering with our carriers for a more sustainable logistics and transportation network by piloting product deliveries with trucks powered by renewable fuels or electricity instead of diesel. Plus, we’re increasing our fleet of electric forklifts in our factories.

Regenerative Agriculture Partnerships

Our support of sustainability organizations like Truterra and Arva and suppliers like Riceland helps implement sustainable practices on more than 150,000 acres of farmland in regions where we source our high-quality ingredients. Regenerative agriculture is an approach to farming that aims to improve soil health and fertility, as well as protect water resources and biodiversity.

Purina supports Truterra’s industry-leading tool for farmers, which helps them in their transition to regenerative practices on 50,000 acres of farmland in eastern Iowa, a region where we source ingredients for our pet food.  

Through an agreement with rice supplier Riceland Foods and Arva Intelligence, Purina is supporting farmer adoption of sustainable practices in U.S. rice production. These practice changes are reducing the climate impacts of working lands while also lowering water consumption on the farm. Arva’s agronomic optimization and carbon quantification platform helps Riceland’s growers make data-informed management plans, and Purina’s financial support of the climate-smart program contributes to local livelihoods.

These practices advance the reduction of climate impacts in working rice lands while lowering water consumption on the farm and improving biodiversity.

Product Packaging Innovations

Our ultimate vision is that none of our product packaging ends up in landfills, but we’re not there yet. That’s why we’re designing innovative, sustainable packaging and supporting efforts to improve recycling infrastructure, so less packaging ends up as waste.
