Over the past several years, we have been focused on developing a deep understanding of our climate impacts through extensive and detailed data collection and analysis, which will allow us to set meaningful targets going forward. In the meantime, we have continued to look for ways of reducing our main operational impacts from energy use at our facilities and emissions from distribution, increasing our portfolio of sustainable products, and reducing our use of virgin materials and waste.
We have also installed energy management systems in 98% of Petco Pet Care Centers. These systems have reduced our energy consumption by 4 million kilowatt hours each year, reducing our carbon footprint by 2,828 metric tons of CO2. That’s the same amount of energy used by 515 U.S. homes in a year!
We are committed to integrating sustainability throughout our business. Our Petco partners are driving more than a dozen sustainability projects. Watch below to learn more from project leaders.
