The problem
Cruel treatment of animals continues around the globe, including through unethical breeding practices; laboratory testing; poor conditions on farms, stockyards and other food production facilities; and animal sports such as dogfighting and cockfighting. Corporations play a central role in ensuring animal welfare, including through their direct treatment of animals (if they are in agricultural, food, beauty, or other industries that involve animals or animal testing) and engagement with their supply chains. Specific steps that companies can take include committing to no animal testing, adopting formal animal welfare policies (and using audit processes to ensure policies are followed), setting explicity board or senior management oversight of animal welfare, and publicly committing to formal animal welfare improvement objectives
