Sustainability at Brambles

As a pioneer of the sharing economy, Brambles is one of the world’s most sustainable logistics businesses. We’re transforming how we get products to people by pioneering truly regenerative supply chains.

Our circular business model facilitates the ‘share and reuse’ of the world’s largest pool of reusable pallets and containers. This enables Brambles to serve its customers while minimising the impact on the environment and improving the efficiency and safety of supply chains around the world. In a resource-constrained world, circular business models like those operated by Brambles are recognised as a practical business solution enabling the world to trade more responsibly. By replenishing what it extracts and providing its products via a service, Brambles helps reduce both the constant pressure on natural resources and the waste production typical of conventional linear business models.

Brambles is working to help create a nature-positive economy with re-use, resilience and regeneration at its core. It’s how we can create more natural and social value than we take while bringing emissions down to zero as soon as possible. We’re setting the ambition to pioneer truly regenerative supply chains. It means breaking the link between consumption and harm to the environment and society. And it means moving from degenerative systems that waste resources to regenerative models that restore nature and strengthen society; In other words, putting back in more than we take from the world. By reaching zero impact and beyond, we’ll be the company delivering the supply chains the world needs for the future.
