Livonia, MI – February 28, 2018 – Supply & Demand Chain Executive (S&DCE) magazine congratulates CHEP Pallecon Solutions and CHEP Automotive & Industrial Solutions on being named to their 2017 Green Providers list. The annual award recognizes companies whose products, services or exemplary environmental stewardship are promoting sustainability within supply chains while making a positive impact on the environment as well as their bottom line.
This recognition follows a recent announcement that Brambles, the leading supply-chain logistics company operating through the CHEP and IFCO brands, was ranked as the top performing company by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) in the global Commercial Services and Supplies industry category for 2017. Brambles’ approach to sustainability has helped establish the company as a leader in this area, with recognition from publications like S&DCE speaking to their continued efforts to reduce carbon emissions, water usage and waste sent to landfills.
Clients who convert from one-time use cardboard packaging to CHEP reusable containers save valuable storage space and streamline transportation, ultimately reducing the number of trucks on the road and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, CHEP’s collapsible stackable containers can be reused for several years, then fully recycled after their useful life, avoiding the landfill waste and the depletion of natural resources associated with single-use packaging.
As a part of the Brambles family of companies, CHEP Pallecon Solutions and CHEP Automotive & Industrial Solutions continue to innovate in an effort to achieve their outlined 2020 Sustainability Goals (shown at right).
