WEYBRIDGE, UK: February 27, 2019. For the fourth consecutive year CHEP Europe, part of the Brambles Group, has earned an EcoVadis Gold Recognition Level, the highest level available, for its sustainability achievements.

The award reflects the company’s efforts covering the Environment, Labour Practices, Fair Business Practices and Supply Chain and is the result of Brambles implementing the circular economy at a global scale, according to the company.

CHEP pallets“CHEP helps move more goods to more people, in more places than any other organisation on earth,” commented Brambles’ global head of Sustainability, Juan José Freijo. “Being socially responsible is at the heart of everything we do. As pioneers of the circular economy, our work has always eliminated waste throughout the supply chain. We recognise that sharing and reusing our finite resources is the right thing for society. Only last year our activities have reduced 1.4 megatons of waste and saved 1.7 million trees.”

EcoVadis operates the first collaborative network for managing sustainability performance of 35,000 suppliers across 150 business sectors and 150 countries. Its methodology is built on CSR standards including the Global Reporting Initiative, the UN Global Compact and the ISO 26000.

CHEP pallets, crates and containers are primarily used by the fast-moving consumer goods sector - including dry food, grocery, health and personal care - fresh produce, beverage, retail and general manufacturing industries. The company employs 11,000 people and manages 300 million pallets (pictured), crates and containers via a network of more than 750 service centres.
