Industry Associations

We’re committed to collaborating with industry leaders to introduce new platforms and services to meet the needs of all participants within the supply chain. We create these innovations through our work directly with our customers, and the many associations and partnerships to which we belong.

A selection of Industry Associations and Partnerships we collaborate with include:

Sustainability Partnership: Landcare Australia

Landcare plays a leading role in changing Australia’s approach to sustainable agricultural practices, environmental protection, land and water conservation, biodiversity and landscape restoration whilst connecting communities.

Landcare Australia’s rigorous project selection criteria ensures the partnership delivers a range of positive outcomes including, natural habitat restoration, enhancing biodiversity and building resilience in Australia’s food and farming systems. These important issues connect CHEP’s supply chain partners to the needs of society and the environment, and support Landcare Australia’s vision for all Australians to actively care for the land and water that sustains us.

With $60,000 in funding from the first CHEP Land Management and Sustainable Agriculture Landcare Grant, the Upper Snowy Landcare Network will be planting 4,500 native trees and shrubs to restore the foundations of an endangered woodland.  For more information, visit https://www.chep.com/au/en/consumer-goods/restoring-foundations-endangered-woodland
