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 2018 Financial Year (FY18)'.
Pioneering a new way of reporting, this year Brambles has used The International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC)'s six capitals framework, grouped under financial, manufactured, intellectual, human, social and relationship, and natural capital, to describe the different ways the group creates value in the short, medium and long term.
Brambles help to move more goods to more people, and its purpose is to connect people with life’s essentials by working with manufacturers, suppliers and retailers and overseeing the whole supply chain: from the farm to the factory, from the shop floor to the front door.
The Sustainability 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).
Highlights of the 2018 Sustainability Review include:
Brambles’ head of Global Sustainability, Juan Jose Freijo, said: “Following engagement with key stakeholders, we decided to adopt a more integrated method to communicate how Brambles creates value for our customers, our communities and our employees. For example, we can show investors how our circular share and reuse business model maintains our products to their highest value for as long as possible while regenerating the key resources we depend on, and reutilising these materials at end-of-life”.
“Our commitment to sustainability is at the very heart of everything we do. Our pallets, crates and containers form the invisible backbone of the global supply chain. As pioneers of the sharing economy and thanks to our share and reuse model, we have created one of the world's most sustainable logistics business. Together with our partners, we solve shared challenges from fighting food waste to protecting forests. That is how we can make a real contribution to a smarter, more sustainable future”.
