Brambles the Australian global supply chain logistics company with its headquarters in Sydney and which has their main operations through their subsidiaries CHEP Aerospace and IFCO, says it will invest up to US$1 billion in the coming years to expand and attain their market presence.
Brambles lays value in reduced carbon emissions
The company claims that since 2010 they have reduced carbon emissions by 20 percent and has sourced 97 percent of their wood products from so-called certified sources.
Brambles operates primarily through its CHEP and IFCO brands and it is assumed that a large part of the planned five year investment sum will go a long way to further improving the products and standing of both companies.
The framework for Brambles 2020 Sustainability Goals is centered around three main areas.
- Better Planet, which aims at zero deforestation, zero emissions and zero waste.
- Better Business, in order to ensure better working conditions, more collaboration, and enhanced supply chains.
- Better Communities. This is aimed at helping communities through environmental and food security education.
This according to Brambles will lead to enhancing performance for their customers by helping them to transport goods through their supply chains more efficiently, sustainably and safely.
