Alignment and delivery on sustainability ambitions

Coles is one of Australia's largest retailers and its ambition is to be Australia's most sustainable supermarket. Coles has entered a 10-year supply chain partnership with CHEP Australia to provide many of Coles' fresh produce and protein suppliers with a pool of reusable plastic containers (RPCs). These RPCs are washed and rotated up to 80 million times per year, supporting environmental benefits, including avoiding more than 98,000 tonnes of carbon emissions; removing more than 13,000 tonnes of solid waste to landfill; and reducing the use of water by 770 megalitres over single-use cardboard alternatives.*

In addition, Coles and CHEP are exploring alignment regarding how each organisation’s roadmaps intersect on sustainability, including the full suite of CHEP platform solutions, transport efficiencies and collaborating to help increase the impact of food rescue organisations. 

* Results based on CHEP Australia's independently peer-reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA) project from RMIT University, Centre for Design, 'A Comparative Life Cycle Assessment of Returnable Plastic Crates versus a Disposable Cardboard Carton for Fresh Produce Distribution in the Australian supply chain.'
