Pets at Home launches second social value report
Pets at Home has launched its second social value report as it looks to achieve its goal of becoming “the most responsible pet care business in the world”.
The report follows the finalising of the retailer’s ‘Our Better World Pledge’ social value strategy, which outlines how Pets at Home will focus its efforts in the three key areas of pets, people and the planet. One of the goals will include becoming net zero by 2040.
Pets at Home has also embarked on a number of partnerships which will enable the business to share knowledge, resources and experiences. These include a partnership with the Prince’s Trust to develop a work experience scheme for young people, signing up to the British Retail Consortium’s Climate Action Roadmap and developing a pet memory scheme with The Woodland Trust.
Peter Pritchard, Pets at Home group chief executive, said: “The launch of our social value strategy marks a major milestone for our business. I am very proud of what we, as a group, have been able to achieve this past year but recognise the importance of strengthening our ambitions and outlining our goals so that we can work towards them together.
“To be the best pet care business in the world, we must also be the most responsible one, and we embark on this new strategy with renewed focus on improving the lives of the nations’ pets, supporting people in our business and communities and helping to protect the planet.”
