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 conducted by Environmental Resource Management (ERM) 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.
