Stewart Shanley, EA CEO
As a company, we have long operated in accordance with our values. We recognize that as a brand, we must abide by our purpose to accomplish the goals we set out to achieve.”
Business integrity means transparency and accountability. It means good governance and ethical business practices. It means working closely with partners to ensure rigorous adherence to testing and safety.
A critical part of our B Corp Certification was a requirement to change our Company Articles of Association to ensure we remain legally accountable to all of our stakeholders — employees, communities, customers, suppliers, and the environment. Therefore, in 2021, we achieved Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) status — a way to officially and publicly balance shareholder interests with environmental, social, and governance performance, including rigorous reporting on our ongoing efforts, progress, and wider impact.

The manufacturers of our treats, food, and chews are certified to the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Edition 9 for Pet Food Safety. All aspects of the food safety program have been audited and verified to meet the Global Food Safety Initiative requirements.

The Partner Code of Conduct also provides Sustainable Sourcing Guidelines for our supply partners. These Guidelines formalize our commitments and ambitions to source ingredients produced, manufactured, grown, raised, captured, or harvested in ways that align with our values and ethics.
As part of our due diligence work, Earth Animal has identified the most significant material risks that our ingredient sourcing causes, contributes to, or is associated with. We have prioritized action on the following –
