The Jaeger Sustainability Strategy. Responsibility for the future.

100% green power. Conserve resources. CO2-neutral to the customer. Keeping an eye on the process. Sustainable through and through. 100% CO2 neutral by 2030.

As a company that acts for the long term, we see it as part of our corporate responsibility to use resources prudently and want to avoid negative impacts on the environment. We therefore set ourselves ambitious global climate protection targets and will drive forward new solutions for sustainable development. This encompasses all of our company’s activities.

Sustainability through and through.

To ensure that not only our production site can reduce its impact on the environment, but also our products, we now offer more environmentally friendly alternatives and innovative new solutions in many areas. By using sustainably produced resources such as recycled raw materials or bio-polymers, we contribute to the circular economy. In addition, we put the entire supply chain to the test and are constantly looking for environmentally friendly alternatives.

CO2-neutral to our customers.

We want to set an example with green mobility. That is why we have already converted a large part of our vehicle fleet to e-mobility. The electricity comes from our charging stations, which are alternately fed with green electricity or electricity from our solar plants.

Green power

Energy efficiency is a top priority at Jaeger to prevent emissions from occurring in the first place. Our plants, processes and buildings are state of the art and are constantly being optimized. The consumption of energy cannot always be avoided everywhere. Therefore, it is all the more important to obtain the required energy from renewable and CO2-neutral sources. For this reason, Jaeger obtains all the electricity at its Wuppertal site from renewable sources. In parallel, we are continuously driving the expansion of our own photovoltaic plants in order to contribute our share to the energy turnaround. Our site in Austria has also been converting its electricity supply to renewable energies for some time now. All other sites will follow suit.

Management systems. Keeping an eye on the process.

In our commitment to sustainability and the protection of the environment, we consider certification by an external auditor to be very important. This shows us objectively where we stand and what we need to work on to continuously improve. We are currently certified in the area of sustainability according to DIN ISO 50001 and DIN ISO 14001. More will follow.

DIN ISO 50001:2018
DIN ISO 14001:2015

Conserve resources. Reduce the burden on the environment.

When we think of the finite nature of resources, the first thing that comes to mind for many is fossil fuels, and we think, for example, of switching from heating oil to solar energy. But the same is true for plastics and all other materials made from crude oil. For this reason, we are continuously trying to reduce our production scrap and increase the recycled content in our products. In the past year alone, we were able to significantly reduce our scrap while increasing the proportion of recycled materials.

CO2 neutrality by 2030. Or faster.

Jaeger has set itself the goal of helping to shape the future and declaring war on emissions. By 2030 at the latest, the energy supply of all sites is to be CO2-neutral. The avoidance of harmful emissions for the environment will be significantly reduced. The proportion of recycled raw materials, bio-polymers and renewable raw materials is to be significantly increased.
