Supply chain logistics company Brambles has been recognised for its work in fighting deforestation.

Brambles, which operates through the CHEP and IFCO brands, has been awarded a position on this year’s Forests A-List by CDP, the global environmental disclosure platform.

The Forests A-List for 2017 is comprised of six companies leading actions against deforestation globally, including L’Oreal, SCA, TETRA PAK, Unilever, and UPM-Kymmene Corporation.

CDP’s A-List has been produced at the request of 827 investors with assets of over US$100 trillion.

Hundreds of companies submit annual forests disclosures to CDP for independent assessment against its scoring methodology.

Brambles is among three per cent of companies participating in CDP’s forests program to achieve the Forests A-List level, which recognises its sustainable sourcing actions for the last reporting year.

Brambles is focused on reducing both wood waste and the use of virgin timber in the world’s supply chains.

By sharing and reusing its pooled platforms, its customers have saved 1.4 million trees in the past year.

The Forests A-List and other company scores are available on CDP’s website.
