Brambles vows to reach net emissions by 2040, 10 years ahead of schedule

As part of its sustainability program, global logistics company CHEP is accelerating its decarbonisation strategy towards renewable energy supply chains.

Amman Jordan: Brambles has unveiled its commitment to achieving zero carbon net emissions by 2040. In 2020, the company announced its 5-year sustainability targets, driven by its promise to avoid a pre-industrial temperature rise of more than 1.5 ° C. Committed to aligning its goals with those of the Paris climate agreement, Brambles has already set an ambitious goal of achieving zero emissions by 2050 and the company is back today with new plans that shorten its time target by ten years.

“Global warming is one of the biggest challenges of our time,” said Juan Jose Frigo, global head of sustainability for Brambles. “To address this challenge, we need to take direct and concrete action. Brambles has already achieved a proven track record of reducing emissions by adopting a business model based on the circular economy and launching a range of innovative initiatives.1 Therefore, our announcement today of these goals crowns another ambitious step in our journey that we started years ago. “

He added, “We were eager to set research-based goals by shortening the time it takes to achieve our emissions-related goals, in an effort to bring us closer to achieving our ambitious chain-achieving vision.” Achieving our ambitions and achieving zero net emissions, we will continue to make every effort to consolidate our global leadership in the areas of sustainability and our constructive role in establishing energy supply chains. renewables that the world needs to predict a bright tomorrow.

Bramble’s new and ambitious commitments are based on a well-defined decarbonisation guide that includes two main objectives:

First: the medium-term goals until 2030, which were recently adopted by the Science-Based Objectives Initiative (iTSB), 2 which include:

– 42% reduction of first and second zone greenhouse gas emissions from their levels for 2020. First and second zone greenhouse gas emissions are emissions resulting from fuel consumption and electricity received from national networks in operational processes;

– 17% reduction in scope 3 of greenhouse gas emissions from their 2020 levels. This includes value chain emissions from asset purchases and production line operations, transmission and distribution before and after production, and residues from operations and in-service centers, which account for more than 90% of 3rd generation emissions;

Second: the long-term goal of achieving zero net emissions by 2040 and this goal is expected to be achieved immediately after achieving the medium-term objectives based on the Science-Based Objectives Initiative (SBYi). This includes a 100% reduction in emissions for generations 1, 2 and 3 3.

A strong guide to decarbonization

Responsible for effectively addressing the decarbonization challenge, Brambles has established a dedicated decarbonization team that complements its work. Through team collaboration with internal and external actors within various initiatives, we were able to develop an applicable roadmap that includes objectives that will transform this strategic vision of the corporation into a tangible reality within its operations on five continents and 60 vend.

Marisa Sanchez Urea, Director of Global Supply Chain Decarbonization at Brambles, said:

The roadmap we have launched in collaboration with teams across our markets in line with the Science-Based Objectives initiative aims to achieve zero emissions by 2040, provides a long-term strategic direction and will help us establish our leading position in the field of sustainability. ”

Marisa added: “We can already achieve these goals thanks to the tools and technologies that facilitate decarbonisation efforts, in addition to the availability of key opportunities to achieve our goals, especially the presence of support policies in addition to transport and infrastructure technologies based on the Emissions Model. zero Therefore, integrating these enablers With the new Strategic Action Plan, we will be able to approximate carbon considerations and bring them into the decision-making process, ensuring our transformation towards an emissions-driven business model. fully zero acceleration. ”

It is worth noting that Brambles, to achieve the stated goals of achieving zero net emissions, will focus on three main areas, including operational operations, whether directly related to the company or subcontractors, logistics and direct procurement. The following is an overview of the key factors supporting these efforts:

Focus on repairing and reusing Brambles pallets and containers to improve the company’s circular pattern;

Relying on renewable energy sources to operate company sites as well as subcontractor sites;

Development of operational processes involving factories and logistics, including minimizing empty corridors and maximizing truck loads;

Inclusion of the use of alternative fuels and zero-emission transport technologies (electricity, hydrogen);

Launching a program to increase the role of suppliers in supporting retailers to calculate carbon emissions and set targets;

Reducing the volume of waste and removing it from the landfill. AND

Explore opportunities to reduce carbon emissions during operations4, including providing nature-friendly technology solutions
