PET SUSTAINABILITY COALITION SETS DATE FOR 2018 IMPACT UNLEASHED EVENT
The Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) has opened ticket sales for the second annual Impact Unleashed event, which will be
held Sept. 20-21 in Denver. Impact Unleashed unites pet industry leaders in a pre-competitive forum that highlights the business case for sustainability through education, inspiration and a path toward implementation, according to event organizers.
In 2017, the event drew 65 values-driven leaders from around the U.S. to hear from world-renowned speakers from the
World Wildlife Fund and Savory Institute. Timberland footwear manufacturing company will speak at this year’s event, and
the organizers expect attendance to double in size this year.
Impact Unleashed is the only event in the pet industry that enables leaders to meet consumers’ expectations for sustainable, responsible and safe products, said show organizers. In 2017, more than 65 pledges were made by companies at Impact
Unleashed to leverage their business toward environmental and social solutions. To satisfy these pledges, this year’s event
will host a handful of workshops designed to ensure that attendees walk away with the tools needed to execute these goals.
Beyond inspiring speakers from outside of the industry, Impact Unleashed also showcases untold stories of profitable
impact from within the pet industry using TED-style presentations. These stories help shape the industry’s sustainability
story so that leaders can share
ideas, successes and challenges, resulting in a more effective
and adaptive community.
Companies are encouraged
to purchase their tickets in sets
of two so that attendees can
brainstorm new ideas and support each other during implementation after the event.
