Our Vision of Sustainability
Royal Canin wants to improve pets' life, placing cats and dogs' needs first to contribute to their optimal health. There is more: our nutritional approach based on nutrients enables us to consider the environmental and social impact of every single recipe we develop, whilst providing pets with nutrition of the highest quality, benefits and safety. And our sustainability journey doesn't end there: we are working relentlessly towards improving our impact on pets, planet and people, by making our activities more sustainable and socially responsible.
Our journey to carbon neutrality
In addition, we will work on transforming the ways of working, from management practices to the engagement of Associates, suppliers and business partners in the journey.
For any emissions that ROYAL CANIN® cannot completely remove or reduce, we invest in removals–based carbon credits. The use of removals–based credits is aligned with the SBTi Net Zero Foundations paper.
More information about ROYAL CANIN® products committed to carbon neutral certification by SCS Global Services can be found here.
More Sustainable Packaging
As a core partner of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s (EMF) New Plastics Economy Initiative, and a signatory of its Global Commitment to eliminate plastic waste and pollution at its source, our vision is aligned with EMF, to support a circular economy where packaging never becomes waste. We aim for all our plastic packaging to be recyclable, reusable or compostable. To close the loop we will also include up to 30% recycled post-consumer plastic in our plastic packaging - dependent on the advancement of chemical recycling at pace and scale & alignment of food safety regulations.

Part of the Omega 3 fatty acids found in these products have been sourced from algal oil instead of fish oil. Not only this allows us to provide the same health benefits for your pet, but it also helps to reduce the amount of fish used in ROYAL CANIN® recipes and therefore help preserve ocean ecosystems.
