- Leading European pallet pooler IPP sets ambitious target as it publishes its first sustainability report.
- In 2022, the Faber Group experienced a notable increase of 13 million in total load carrier movements, reaching around 125 million compared to 112 million in 2021.
Leading European pallet pooler, IPP Pooling, has unveiled its inaugural sustainability report, accompanied by an ambitious commitment to achieve net zero status by 2045. Headquartered in Coventry, IPP Pooling specializes in sustainable wooden pallet pooling services and is dedicated to enhancing its operational sustainability through an extensive ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) strategy.
The pallet pooler’s comprehensive plan is focused on specific areas for carbon emission reduction and pallet circularity enhancement. Notable goals include a 30% reduction in transport emissions per trip by 2030 and ensuring a minimum of 80% of wood used is sustainably verified by 2025.
Target identification followed a thorough audit of IPP’s operations, revealing that 85% of its current carbon footprint originates from materials and transportation. IPP is actively working to extend pallet lifespan and decrease losses from its pallet pool through enhanced repair and maintenance practices.
Shelley Harris, IPP’s Commercial Director, highlighted the strategic approach, stating, “We have carefully selected areas that offer us the opportunity to make the most impact on reducing our carbon footprint and those of our customers. Our future digitalization plans will also help us to reach our net-zero target.”
To align all departments with sustainability objectives, IPP established an international Sustainability Community within its structure. Appointed sustainability drivers are tasked with implementing change on a local level. James Goode, Head of Logistics at IPP, emphasized the company’s efforts to reduce transport emissions through efficiency improvements, heightened utilization rates, and optimized transport networks.
As part of the Faber Group, IPP operates a pay-per-use model for reusable pallet and box pooling services across Europe, catering to fast-moving consumer goods and industrial supply chains. In 2022, the Faber Group experienced a notable increase of 13 million in total load carrier movements, reaching around 125 million compared to 112 million in 2021.
IPP Pooling’s sustainability journey exemplifies its dedication to minimizing environmental impact and driving industry-wide change toward a greener future.
