The state of our planet is everyone's concern. As a result, businesses are increasingly setting goals to reduce their environmental footprint by lowering carbon emissions. Switching from wood pallets to iGPS' 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 iGPS 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 iGPS' plastic platform. It found that iGPS' plastic platform has dramatically less environmental impact than both the pooled multi-use wood pallet and one-way wood pallet, on all measured dimensions.

When comparing the iGPS pallet and the typical multi-use wood pallet:

  • Abiotic Depletion: iGPS' pallet has 25% - 35% less impact
  • Global Warming: iGPS' pallet had 65% - 70% less impact
  • Ozone Layer Depletion: iGPS' pallet had 91% - 92% less impact
  • Photochemical Oxidation: iGPS' pallet had 60% - 65% less impact
  • Acidification: iGPS' pallet had 60% - 65% less impact
  • Eutrophication: iGPS' pallet had 75% - 80% less impact
