Corporate Responsibility

Today For Tomorrow

Royal Canin is dedicated to the responsible use and sustainability of our ingredients. In response to projected overburdened human food supplies, we are actively investigating sustainable ingredient sources. These ingredient sources must deliver optimal nutritional benefits while minimizing impact on the environment and human food supplies. Developing new and sustainable nutrient sources is proof of Royal Canin’s commitment to tomorrow.

Sustainability in Action

Actions speak louder than words – here are just a few of the ways Royal Canin Canada is actively living up to our commitment to sustainability:

  • Application of innovative methods to divert waste from landfills, achieving zero waste-to-landfill in 2013 by recycling wherever possible and converting kibble waste into biofuel or compost
  • Implementation of Biofilter Technology* to remove potentially offensive odours from plant emissions
  • Supporting Continuous Improvement teams in identifying opportunities to further reduce waste and utilities consumption
  • Purchasing energy efficient equipment while researching alternative energy sources
  • Reviewing new projects for potential environmental impacts
  • Reducing water consumption and using an on-site water treatment facility to ensure used water meets accepted specifications before directing it back to municipal treatment facilities

* Royal Canin Canada’s manufacturing facility includes an odour treatment system – known as a Biofilter – that uses naturally occurring bacteria to destroy odoriferous compounds. The plant air is filtered before being released into the environment; using very little energy, requiring no hazardous chemicals, and producing no harmful waste products. This biofiltration technology was developed by a company that’s also based in Guelph, Ontario, and is now being used at Royal Canin plants all around the world.
