Supporting Local Communities

Making a Difference to Local Communities Across Australia

As a Brambles company, CHEP contributes positively to the communities in which we operate by supporting food security and food waste initiatives, education, environmental restoration programs, and by encouraging our people to participate in local community initiatives.

Our 2025 sustainability vision is to Pioneer Regenerative Supply Chains

At Brambles, we are working to help create a nature positive economy with re-use, resilience and regeneration at its core. It’s how we can create more natural and social value than we use, while bringing emissions down to zero as soon as possible. We’re setting the ambition to pioneer truly regenerative supply chains. It means breaking the link between consumption and harm to the environment and society. And it means moving from degenerative systems that waste resources to regenerative models that restore nature and strengthen society; in other words, putting back in more than we take from the world. By reaching zero impact and beyond, we’ll be the company delivering the supply chains the world needs for the future.

Brambles also provides 3 days volunteering leave to all permanent employees each year and our goal is to ensure all 3 days are used per employee every year to maximise our contribution to the community.

Supporting Communities: In-kind and charitable donations

We partner with local and global organisations by supplying our reusable platforms such as pallets, Reusable Plastic Containers (RPCs) and intermediate bulk containers, as well as the expertise of our people.

Provision of platforms helps our charity partners achieve their aims by lowering operating costs, putting much needed funds to the frontline.

Employees are also provided with volunteer opportunities to help our charities with requirements ranging from logistics planning and network collaboration to packing food hampers for those in need.

In 2021, CHEP Australia donated AU$4,295,920 through volunteering, in-kind and charitable donations.

Regenerating Australia's Monaro Region

In May 2021, CHEP Australia in partnership with Landcare Australia, planted 4,500 native trees and shrubs. The project will restore habitat for native birds, bats and marsupials, including some of the 46 species that are listed as vulnerable or endangered in the region. It is projected to drawdown over 3,200 tCO2 over the next 25 years.

CHEP Australia's Net-Zero Renewable Electricity Strategy

CHEP has implemented a strategic net-zero electricity procurement plan, meaning the business will progressively increase the purchase of certified renewable electricity, reaching 100% in 2024. Up until this time, CHEP will purchase VCO's* from renewable electricity projects and continue the roll-out of on-site solar PV installations at its service centres. This will make CHEP’s circular business model even more sustainable.

*Brambles’ renewable electricity result includes electricity from renewable electricity contracts, certified ‘Greenpower’, Energy Attribute Certificates (EACs) and Verified Carbon Offsets (VCOs) from renewable energy projects.
