It’s Not Luck, It’s Pallets!

Although wearing green is thought to bring good luck on St. Patrick’s Day, going green can bring more than good fortune. It can also save energy and reduce waste for your organization. So, where do you start?

You’ve likely heard of CSR (corporate social responsibility) and ESG (environmental, social and governance). Both terms share a common thread of social responsibility in business. The main difference is that ESG reports on or measures the impact of a company’s CSR initiatives.

Businesses with the most successful CSR practices have actionable and attainable ESG criteria. In other words, they started with small initiatives that could be easily adopted and sustained across the organization and grew from there.

So, where’s a small place to start in the supply chain? With your pallets, of course!  Many of our clients have incorporated their pallet program into CSR initiatives with great results. And although we may be a little biased, we believe pallets are the perfect way to go green and stay green. Here’s why:

  1. Pallets are made using a renewable resource.
  2. Pallets can be recycled or remanufactured rather than taking up space in a landfill.
  3. At the end of their lifecycle, pallets can be upcycled or repurposed into other products.
  4. By storing carbon, a wooden pallet reduces CO2 emissions which helps to slow global climate change and improve air quality.
  5. Through careful design, biobased pallets use less fossil fuel in the manufacturing process thereby reducing our nation’s reliance on petroleum. These pallets are also lighter in weight, requiring less fuel to transport.

Ready to add pallets to your CSR initiatives and ESG reporting? Consult with the experts at Rose Pallet.

We have a variety of eco-friendly, wooden pallet and packaging solutions for your supply chain needs. We’re also active users of the Pallet Design System™ (PDS) and a proud member of the USDA Biopreferred® Program, which means we can help you design the perfect biobased pallet.

And don’t forget to wear green in two days…. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
