Building a Sustainable World

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. We help customers become part of the circular economy through our principles of share and reuse. The more our customers use our platforms, the greater the efficiencies.

Our first-ever Sustainability Day

This is a cause CHEP is very passionate about, so we have chosen to align with the United Nations and hold our company’s first-ever Sustainability Day on 5 June as well.

We are committed to the UN’s drive to make the world a better place, which is why our 2020 Sustainability Goals are so closely aligned to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainability Goals 2020

At the same time, we strive to minimise our own impact on the environment and contribute positively to the communities we operate in. CHEP plays a major role in advancing the Brambles Group’s Sustainability strategy and achieving its 2020 Sustainability Goals, which are tied to the Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations. All our Sustainability activities are built around our strategic framework of Better Business, Better Planet, Better Communities.

Calculate how much you can save

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.

Our Power Of Pooling calculator helps you quickly identify your potential cost and environmental savings.

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.

Watch how our business model builds on sustainability based on an example for pallets and the manufacturer-retailer cycle.

Collaboration Project

The biggest Sustainability benefits can only be achieved by end-to-end collaboration across the entire supply chain. We work with you, your suppliers, your logistics partners, and others to find opportunities where cooperation can make your business more efficient. Scroll down to read case studies on some of the successful collaboration projects we have carried out with our customers.

Coca Cola European Partners

In 2015 CHEP was named Coca-Cola Enterprises’ (CCE) Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Supplier of the Year. We won this award for our continuous efforts to develop innovative and sustainable logistics solutions.

The customer benefitted strongly from the successful collaboration projects it carried out with us. CHEP and CCE jointly developed an innovative new type of wheeled platform to meet CCE’s specific needs and make its supply chain more efficient. CCE also joined our collaborative transportation programme,which removed three million kilometres of truck haulage from European roads and cut CCE’s carbon emissions by almost three metric tonnes.
