Brambles, the global supply chain logistics company operating in more than 60 countries, primarily through the CHEP and IFCO brands, has published its Sustainability Review for the 2017 Financial Year (FY17). The Review includes updates on CHEP and IFCO’s sustainability programme and its progress towards its 2020 Sustainability Goals. These goals are based on the company’s Better Business, Better Planet, Better Communities sustainability programme and are closely aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Examples of Brambles’ achievements reported in the 2017 Sustainability Review include:
These achievements have been recognised through multiple industry awards, including a Gold award from EcoVadis which specialises in supplier sustainability analysis. Brambles has also been ranked top of its industry category on the World Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), and received AAA ratings from the Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) and Sustainalytics indices.
To create a Better Workplace, Brambles is committed to achieving its goal of Zero Harm. The company made another large step towards that goal with both the CHEP and IFCO business units improving their safety performance in FY17. The financial year also saw a 78% increase in learning hours, with employees completing 1.73 days’ worth of training each on average.
Brambles’ Head of Global Sustainability, Juan Jose Freijo, said: “This has been another fantastic year for sustainability at Brambles in which we have continued our excellent progress towards our 2020 goals. These achievements are only possible thanks to the end-to-end collaboration between our employees and our customers worldwide”.
“Our commitment to sustainability is at the very heart of everything we do. Through the successful combination of our circular, “share and reuse” business model, global scale and supply chain expertise, we are able to reduce operating costs and demand for natural resources, both in our own company and across the world’s supply chains.”
