At Jointak, we make every effort to minimise our global footprint and everything we do focusses on what is most important to us – People and Planet. We are proud to have strong principles and clear guidelines for protecting the environment while also regularly assessing our raw material partners on their workplace safety and environmental protection practices. As a demonstration of our commitment to corporate stewardship, we have developed a series of sustainability principles as follows.
RESPONSIBLE SUPPLY CHAINS AND PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE
We are proud to have strong principles and clear guidelines for protecting the environment while also regularly assessing our raw material partners on their worksite safety and environmental protection practices.
By leveraging eco-friendly technology and other sustainable production processes, we are sharing our environmental principles with employees, partners and customers alike. We have created a range of label and hangtag products that have minimal impact on the environment. Demand for yarns manufactured from recycled PET plastic bottles, bamboo and PLA yarns derived from annually regenerating plants is ever increasing. These products, when used in conjunction with the vast range of recycled and FSC certified boards and papers, assist to dramatically reduce the ecological footprint that we leave on our planet.
RESPONSIBLE FACILITY MANAGEMENT
We are continually reviewing what we do and how we can further minimise the impact we leave on the environment. Our focus has been and very much remains on the following.
Reduced Negative Impact on the Environment
We are constantly reviewing our work practices and the things in our control to reduce our impact on the environment. Through the use of vegetable-based inks for printing, more sustainable raw material options for labelling (e.g. recycled polyester, organic cotton etc.) and recycled plastics for injection moulding all help to minimise the impact our production facilities have on the environment.
We endeavour to recycle as much of our production waste as possible. All paper offcuts from print production, metal castoff from the manufacture of tooling, yarn and other textile waste and even used fluorescent lighting tubes and batteries are all collected from our factory site by recycling companies who process the wastage and recirculate this back into industry.
Decreased Water, Energy and Material Usage
Installation of solar panels at manufacturing sites, advanced wastage reduction mechanisms and more water wise production and cleaning processes have seen positive contributions in this area over the past years.
