Carbon friendly to carbon neutral
Carbon Neutral is about giving back to the environment what has been taken. Carbon offset mitigates the CO2 emissions you generate from operations like pallet management by funding offset projects that capture greenhouse gases.
The CHEP CarbonNeutral® Half Pallet is the first-ever CarbonNeutral® certified pooled platform in North America. It won the Industrial Pack "Environmental Initiative of the Year" Award in 2018.
While our pooled half pallets are inherently sustainable, to “close the sustainability loop,” we calculate the carbon footprint of the platform, and then purchases carbon offset credits from Natural Capital Partners, a leading offset retailer. The credits benefit the Mississippi Alluvial Valley Reforestation Project, an effort supporting an important North American eco-system.
The project will reduce an estimated 200 metric tons of CO2 equivalent per acre, create revenue and jobs and improve water quality and biodiversity. To date, CHEP has offset 926 metric tons (2.1 million pounds) of carbon emissions, equivalent to planting a variety of approximately 3,000 hardwood trees.
CHEP CarbonNeutral® half pallets help protect our planet without compromising profit. They help increase product availability through easy in-store replenishment and improve product promotional execution.
