The Agria team’s love for the environment is something we share every day with our four-legged best friends! Sustainability isn't just a buzzword—it's an integral part of our identity. As a proud carbon positive pet insurance provider, our commitment goes beyond our operations. Did you know that we've planted over 3,500 trees around the world and invest in local community initiatives, as well as overseas conservation projects?
And this year, we’re excited to be having our most sustainably-focused Crufts yet!
For over 130 years, Agria, proud partners of The Kennel Club, has been here to provide the best care for pets and peace of mind for their owners. Alongside this we also have a duty to our environment, and it’s because of our values that we have committed to Preserve our planet, Protect pets and help to Prevent pets’ ill health through our research fund. We also want to take responsibility for our environmental impact today.
We are passionate about our rescue community, who work so hard to give pets a second chance. We’ve protected over 100,000 rescue animals and donated over £2,000,000 to rescue and animal welfare charities.
We do all we can to reduce waste and digitise our service and communications, We engage in community initiatives and clean our surrounding environment for all to enjoy.
Research into pet health supports longevity of breeds and improvements in treatments. New and sustainable treatment options can have a positive impact on our pets and our planet.
We love to meet our wonderful customers and their pets, which means we attend many events throughout the year. In order to keep the environmental impact low, we don’t use printed materials, instead we’ve moved to digital channels to reduce paper use. You won’t spot any single use plastics and we ensure we have a recycling station on hand for our team and visitors to use. Our event stands are used at multiple events and when they are no longer able to be used again, we recycle them into other materials.
“Officially becoming carbon positive is a truly significant moment for us - as a business, as animal lovers and as pet owners - but, of course, our pledge to the environment doesn’t end here.
“We will continue innovating to ensure our carbon footprint reduces still further. We are taking tangible action and investing in initiatives that will both help and support our teams, our customers, our partners, and of course, our beloved four-legged friends - we want to meaningfully contribute to minimising their environmental impact too. Every one of us in and around Agria, has been part of this journey in one way or another.” Vicki Wentworth, CEO
