REDUCE CARBON

As a result, businesses are increasingly setting goals to reduce their environmental footprint by lowering carbon emissions. Switching from wood pallets to ‘ plastic platforms is a fast and proven way to do so, helping your business achieve its sustainability objectives while also extending a helping hand to Planet Earth.

A comprehensive independent life-cycle analysis has proven the environmental superiority of the plastic platform. The study examined the impacts of all three types of pallets in use today: the one-way wood pallet, the wood rental pallet and ‘ plastic platform. It found that ‘ plastic platform has dramatically less environmental impact than both the pooled multi-use wood pallet and one-way wood pallet, on all measured dimensions.
