Having successfully completed its 2020 sustainability strategy, meeting its key objectives, this time last year, Brambles announced its new 2025 Sustainability targets and ambition to ‘Pioneer Regenerative Supply Chains’, based on a ‘Planet Positive, Business Positive and Communities Positive’ strategy.
Just one year into the programme, Brambles’ Sustainability Review highlights achievements which show great progress towards the company’s a net-positive future.
The report shows that Brambles is now a carbon-neutral operations business. The company says its net carbon emissions have been offset across scope one and scope two by investing in reforestation projects and procurement of renewable electricity. This milestone supports Brambles’ commitment to a 1.5-degree climate future, aligns with the highest level of ambition on the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, and demonstrates early action on its decarbonisation pathway.
The company also showed progress towards its Workplace Positive targets by being recognised as a Top Employer in 17 countries and across four regions. It also achieved 32% of women in management roles through rolling out inclusivity, wellbeing-at-work and accessibility initiatives.
Brambles also provided more than 17 million people with meals via its food rescue partners across the globe in the 2021 fiscal year and impacted 100,000 people positively through its circular economy communications, training and advocacy efforts.
Graham Chipchase, Brambles CEO commented: “In our new five-year sustainability strategy, Brambles charts a clear course towards a truly regenerative supply chain. with reuse, resilience and regeneration as our core tenets.”
