Brambles has announced its commitment to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2040. The company’s pledge to a 1.5°C climate future was an essential driving force behind its five-year sustainability targets published in 2020. By pledging to align with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, Brambles was already committed to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by no later than 2050. With this new roadmap to net-zero emissions, the supply chain solutions company is bringing that deadline forward by ten years.
“Global warming is one of the greatest challenges of our time and we need stronger action now. Brambles has a track record of reducing emissions through its circular business model, a range of innovative initiatives and its past achievements . These targets are an important next step in a journey that we started years ago”.
“Adopting science-based targets and bringing the net-zero deadline forward by ten years accelerates our mission to build a regenerative supply chain. By delivering on our net zero ambition and beyond, we will continue to be a sustainability global leader building the supply chains the world needs for the future.”, says Juan José Freijo, Brambles Chief Sustainability Officer.
To manage this challenge effectively, Brambles has created a dedicated decarbonisation function integrated within the supply chain organisation.
