Zero Waste World Events

Through Zero Waste World, CHEP is excited to connect leading manufacturers and retailers to find new ways to collaborate, innovate and build smarter and more sustainable supply chains – creating more value and using fewer resources, together.

Zero Waste World Summit 
At the Zero Waste World Summit, which is hosted twice per year by CHEP North America, hear from industry innovators who are solving complex problems advancing sustainability as we all work toward a regenerative future.

Step into the positive and discover how top global organizations were able to reduce inefficiencies, eliminate waste and eradicate empty miles through cooperative problem solving and learn how to identify similar opportunities in your own supply chains.
