Better Planet, Better Business, Better Communities

CHEP’s business model is inherently sustainable. By using our pooled assets and sustainability solutions our customers’ supply chains become more efficient in terms of cost and use of natural resources, leaner and greener. We help you become part of the circular economy through our 'share and reuse' principle.

CHEP is part of the circular economy

Our share and reuse business model is based on the concept of the circular economy, an industrial model where waste is seen as a resource and zero pollution is produced. We go for a better business, better people and a better planet by continuously reusing the pallets, so the need for resources and waste is minimised.

The circular economy

Reuseable packaging solutions are inherently more efficient than single-use ones. When our customers share and reuse the same pallets to move their products, fewer pallets are required, less natural resources are consumed, less waste ends up in landfill sites and less CO2 enters the earth’s atmosphere. All of our wood is 100% FSC® or PEFC® certified and when it's no longer of use, we reclaim it back into new pallets or other processed wood products. Moreover the density of our network allows shorter transport distances, which means less CO2 emmission.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our Sustainability programme is endorsed by the United Nations (UN) and our 2020 Sustainability Goals are fully aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. CHEP has worked very closely with the United Nations Refugee Agency to improve its supply chains and ensure emergency aid gets to where it’s needed as quickly as possible.

We are also a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. This is a voluntary corporate citizenship initiative that encourages businesses to align their strategy and operations with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
