Corporate Social Responsibility

We respect the environment and the people around us.

At CHEP Russia, we are fully aware of the influence that our daily business activities and our employees have on the community around us.  We believe in ensuring that we have a positive social impact in terms of sustainability, the environment, education and social responsibility. That’s why we encourage our colleagues to get involved in social projects and we give them three days’ leave a year to do this. We are dedicated to adopting the right approach to enhance the well-being of the community, our employees and the environment.              

Corporate Social Responsibility is about giving something back to the community in an enjoyable and responsible way. Here is a quick overview of the projects our colleagues have been involved.

Every year we take part in tree-planting activities in the Moscow Region.

Over the last four years, over 74 hectares of forest have been destroyed by the spruce bark beetle, and massive areas of forest have also been destroyed by fire. In an attempt to protect and reestablish the disappearing forests, every year a team from CHEP’s Russian office takes part in the "Our Forest. Plant your Tree", initiative, organized by government of Moscow Region. CHEP employees have been taking part in this project since 2016.
We have contributed in this project by planting in total of around 500 trees being planted each year. More than 150,000 people took part in this project across all the areas covered in 2017. Over 1,700,000 trees were planted, covering an area of over 1,000 hectares.
This represents a major step towards recovering the lost forest. We believe that investing our working time in these kinds of activities helps us to foster the right relationship with nature, and to remind ourselves and those around us of our personal responsibility to look after the environment.

Working together with RUS, Russia’s biggest food bank.

CHEP works together with food charities all over the world. In Russia the company’s employees took part in two projects organized by the RUS Food Foundation - Basket of Kindness and The People’s Lunch.
The Basket of Kindness initiative took place at a Perekrestok store (owned by the X5 Retail Group). CHEP volunteers were given the chance to collect groceries for families in need, donated by shoppers to the Basket of Kindness. The volunteers’ work was focused on providing shoppers with information about the special products sold in stores and persuading them to buy these products and to donate them immediately to the Foundation’s volunteers in the shop, who use them to support large families and others having a hard time. 

The People’s Lunch project is designed to provide those going through a difficult time with regular lunches made from high-quality natural produce. The project’s task is to attract volunteers and to provide food to those in need.  The groceries to be packed were purchased using CHEP company funds. Throughout the day the employees even collected different types of cereals, sunflower oil and pasta and packed the groceries into individual kits. One hundred People’s Lunch kits were collected and packed.
