Duynie Ingredients recognized for its environmental efforts

CUIJK, NETHERLANDS — For the third consecutive year, Duynie Ingredients has been recognized as one of the most successful accredited sustainable companies by the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC). PSC showcased the top environmental players in the pet industry at the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida on March 24.

Duynie Ingredients has been evaluated by a third-party company that quantified the impact of Duynie Ingredients’ activities and products for pets, people and the planet. PSC has ranked Duynie Ingredients among the 20 most sustainable companies in the pet industry in 2020 and 2021. And now, in 2022, the company has been awarded as the best accredited company for reducing its environmental impact for the pet industry. Duynie Ingredients has been a PSC member since 2018 and a PSC accredited company since 2019.

Duynie Ingredients is one of Europe’s leading producers of sustainable plant-based ingredients for the pet food industry. All of its ingredients are derived from vegetable co-products, sourced locally from the food industry. Duynie Ingredient’s processing plant in the Netherlands uses waste heat from a nearby bioenergy plant, allowing the company to produce sustainable pet food ingredients such as potatoes, carrots and other vegetables with a lower carbon footprint than conventional alternatives.

PSC’s mission is to advance business through cost-effective environmental and social practices. PSC-accredited companies meet minimum sustainability performance and pass a transparent, third-party verified assessment of their impact and commitment to continuous improvement with their stakeholders. Accredited companies align their sustainability practices with globally recognized Sustainable Development Goals. Alignment with these goals ensures companies are working towards outcomes that are universally recognized as optimal and can be tracked and measured for desired impact.

Companies recognized as top environmental performers by PSC have achieved the best results in their efforts to manage greenhouse gas emissions, water use and the use of green raw materials.
