CHEP Australia CSR efforts recognised

Supply-chain load-equipment company CHEP Australia, part of global supply chain solutions company Brambles Limited, has been ranked in the top five per cent of all suppliers assessed for sustainability by independent, global agency EcoVadis.

CHEP Australia was awarded ‘Gold Level’ for its approach to environmental management, labour and fair business practices and its sustainable procurement of strategic materials.

EcoVadis assesses 35,000 suppliers from 99 countries across 150 business sectors, considering ethical, social environmental risks of its customers’ supplier base. Its methodology is built on international corporate social responsibility (CSR) standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26000, covering 150 spend categories and 140 countries.

“Each function in CHEP Australia sets a high standard for responsible business practice, and collectively this makes CHEP a great business,” said Lachlan Feggans, Senior Manager – Sustainability, Asia Pacific at CHEP.

“We are extremely proud to receive this recognition for our efforts in Corporate Social Responsibility. We are a sustainable business and, as the leader in sustainable supply chains, our actions don’t go unnoticed.

“This is all thanks to our share-and-reuse business model, our end-to-end collaboration with key partners and the passion of our employees for making the world a better place.”
