PETA has a dedicated team of scientists, regulatory specialists, and lawyers working together to end the use of tests on animals worldwide. We work directly with companies’ CEOs, management teams, research and development specialists, and global sustainability officers to ensure that all the information that we receive is 100% accurate and complete, from the top down.
We require that the statement of assurances be signed by the company’s CEO, and the statement is a legally binding document, not just a mere promise that the company won’t test on animals or a form response from a customer service representative. Companies are putting their integrity on the line when they share their policies and respond to consumer inquires. A company that has publicly announced an end to tests on animals would face a public relations disaster and potential lawsuits if it were caught lying.
