Sustainability and a Zero Waste World

Smarter, More Sustainable Supply Chains

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.

Just finding individual efficiencies is not enough for the challenge that we all face. We need a new collective mindset that starts from the principle of generating zero waste – then working together to see how to make that happen. In 2019, CHEP launched "Zero Waste World" an initiative to bring together many of the world’s major companies in a group effort to address the three main challenges facing our supply chain.

2025 sustainability targets

2020 initiates the “decade of action” on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). CHEP’s 2025 targets are our guide to making this vision a reality by focusing our actions where our sustainable business can have the most positive impact.

We’ll work across our value chain to deliver life’s daily essentials while restoring nature and advancing a fairer society.

Our focus is on three key areas to become Planet Positive, Business Positive and Communities Positive.

Committing to net-zero emissions by 2040

Giving back what we take from the planet is no longer enough. We must accelerate our efforts to build a regenerative supply chain together. Brambles is adopting science-based targets and bringing the net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions deadline from the Paris Climate Agreement forward by ten years.
