PSC Announces Impact Unleashed Sponsors and Speakers

500+ pet industry professionals will gather at Impact Unleashed this year.




(PRESS RELEASE) BOULDER, CO — One of the most cherished events in the pet industry is The Pet Sustainability Coalition’s signature annual conference, Impact Unleashed. This year, 500-plus pet industry professionals will gather at Impact Unleashed, taking place virtually on October 12-13. This two-day event inspires purpose-driven leaders to meet the growing demand for sustainable products and companies. Last year, in the midst of lockdowns and travel restrictions, PSC pivoted quickly to offer Impact Unleashed in a virtual format. The result was 4 times the growth in attendance and outstanding ratings and reviews. With the event being virtual again this year, it gives the opportunity for even more of the industry to gather for this highly rated two-day experience.

With the help of remarkable event sponsors, PSC is able to keep ticket prices low for attendees, ensuring equitable access to its innovative content. 2021 Sponsors include: Petco, Earth Animal, Morris Packaging, Kong Company, Mud Bay, Kent Pet Group, WellPet, Nature’s Logic, Veramaris and Trayak Consulting. These sponsors not only contribute financially to the event, but often join as co-hosts and special guests throughout the event as part of a truly engaging attendee experience.

The Pet Sustainability Coalition is also very excited to announce this year’s keynote speaker, Dr. Bronner’s, a company committed to socially and environmentally responsible hair and body care products. Other inspiring speakers include Global Animal Partnership, Textile Exchange, UpCycled Food Association, Earth Animal, Petco, Royal Canin, Alltech and West Paw. Discussion topics will include everything from Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to protein sourcing topics including “the Better Chicken Project.”

This 5th annual event is like no other in the pet industry. 73 percent of last year’s attendees report that Impact Unleashed was better than, or the best virtual event they attended. And, 87 percent report it met or exceeded its goals. “The positive energy, passion and overwhelming sense of shared purpose in the room was unlike anything I’ve experienced at a pet industry event”, said Michael Baker, president, Pet Food Experts. We can’t wait to see everyone on October 12-13!

Tickets can be purchased for unlimited access to keynote speakers, panels, and workshops but those looking to test the waters can see keynote speaker Dr. Bronner’s at no cost by registering for a FREE Starter-Pass. Looking for some fun? Grab a “Party-Go-Er” ticket to attend the award ceremony and fundraiser with live entertainment sponsored by Petco.
