At Purina, we are passionately committed to making pets' lives better. That's why, for over 80 years, we have been working to support pets and pet owners - researching and developing products, growing our understanding of their needs, providing information and advice and sharing our experience with pet lovers across the globe. Today, Purina is one of the world's leading pet care companies. Our dedication to pets and their owners directs everything we do, every day, everywhere, helping to enrich the lives of pets as they enrich ours.
This passion and commitment is what makes Purina unique. It's what motivates us, challenges and rewards us. It's the reason we are able to make a tangible difference to the lives of millions of pets and their owners, every single day.
Our passion for pets and commitment to their owners goes far beyond the products that we make. As a global leader in the pet care community, we recognise our responsibilities: to nurture and support deserving causes, to promote the highest standards of care and to combat cruelty, to share our understanding and experience with others, and to behave with respect towards those who work with us and the communities who sustain us.
Our fundamental approach to business lies in the creation of long-term, sustainable value for our consumers, customers, employees, shareholders and society as a whole. The Nestlé Corporate Business Principles, to which Nestlé Purina PetCare adheres, explain our basic responsibilities to these stakeholders, and openly state that we favour long-term business development over short-term profit. They include all nine principles of the UN Global Compact regarding labour standards, human rights, and the environment.
Nestlé Purina PetCare is committed to responsible environmental practice across all areas in which we operate. We respect the environment, support sustainable development and are committed to environmentally sound business practices. We will comply with all applicable environmental legislation and strive to be a good neighbour in all those communities where we operate.
