Coca-Cola reduces its pallet related CO2 emissions by 60%
Thanks to the use of reusable wooden pallets from CHEP, Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP) has achieved a 60% reduction in its CO2 emissions from the use of pallets across Spain and Portugal.
During the last year they have prevented the emission of 6,638 metric tons of CO2, which is equivalent to 151 round the world trips by truck. In addition, CHEP pooling has helped CCEP save more than 5,200 trees and reduced the production of 570 tons of waste, comparable to the waste generated by 1,200 people annually.
To measure the environmental impact of Coca-Cola European Partners in Iberia, CHEP has conducted an independent study based on the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) according to ISO14044. The study ratified the environmental benefits offered by CHEP compared to alternative methods, such as the pallet exchange system or lost shipments.
