CHEP highly commended in sustainability award

September 06, 2012


On Monday, 3 September, CHEP Australia’s reusable multi-purpose beverage tray placed Highly Commended in the NSW Government’s Green Globe Awards, Environment Innovation category.

The Environment Innovation award, which attracted several hundred nominations, recognises new technology, design or research that has resulted in significant resource savings, new approaches in sustainable practice or innovative change in environmental management.

The reusable multi-purpose beverage tray system was designed for the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) sector and eliminates around 1,250 tonnes of one-way cardboard packaging waste each year from the beverage supply chain.
CHEP led the collaborative project to ‘imagine a more innovative beverage supply chain’, that included reduced environmental impacts and nominated for a Green Globe award to raise awareness of CHEP’s reusable packaging platforms and the environmental benefits that can be achieved by whole-of-industry collaboration and innovation.

Customer Programs Manager Annette Arzoumanian says, “The reusable multi-purpose beverage tray is enjoying additional up-take by our customers with the benefits it delivers environmentally and within the supply chain.”
