August 05, 2014

30 July 2014 - In recognition of its commitment to environmental sustainability, CHEP Australia has received the Australian Packaging Covenant’s High Performers Award in the Small to Medium Packaging Manufacturer category.

CHEP was also named the ‘Top Collector’ for collecting the most mobile phones and accessories through the MobileMuster[1] program.

The Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) Awards recognise the accomplishments of companies in packaging product stewardship through their commitment and involvement in the APC.

APC CEO, Stan Moore said: “The APC is proud to acknowledge the work of our high performing signatories. The APC high performers are leading the way in packaging sustainability and innovation; they are a testament to the growing realisation that innovation and sustainability make good business sense, create opportunities for better employee and supply chain engagement, and can provide a competitive advantage”.

CHEP’s Manager, Sustainability Programs Nicole Boyd said: “As an equipment pooling company, sustainability is at the heart of what we do at CHEP and we are committed reducing single use packaging from the supply chain.

“We are working towards improving the impacts that we can make on our environment through our own operational efficiencies, and also developing supply chain solutions aimed at reducing single use packaging. 

“CHEP is a voluntary member of the APC and as a result, we have been able to work with like-minded organisations to improve supply chain sustainability together.”

CHEP Australia received the award at the APC Awards Night held in Sydney on 23 July 2014.
