CHEP has firsthand experience with how the power of teamwork energizes a more sustainable future. The business seeks to develop a fully circular system inside its operations by building strategic alliances with brands and businesses of all sizes through a cooperative share, repair, and reuse program.
Any business that purchases product pallets has the opportunity to join CHEP's circular model. Pallets that are dumped or otherwise not returned to CHEP result in high replacement prices, additional labor expenses, distribution surcharges, and environmental damage. Although any company that purchases pallets of goods has the potential to participate in CHEP's circular model, manufacturers and retail consumer goods businesses have seen the greatest success. Data on the carbon emissions, waste, and lumber saved through the relationship are provided by CHEP in direct collaboration with the program's sustainability teams, demonstrating the strength of cooperation in achieving each party's unique sustainability goals.
