Environmental protection in production
JUMBO-Textil manufactures with green power
Europe is looking to have a neutral environmental footprint. That is the goal in the Green Deal: zero net emissions of greenhouse gases from 2050. It is important to us at JUMBO-Textil to help achieve this goal. One indispensable step for us is reducing CO2 emissions in the production of our narrow textiles.
Only green power and green gas
Since the beginning of this year, we have exclusively been using green power and green gas. The electricity for our production and administration in Sprockhövel is generated from solar, wind and water power. The CO2-neutral biogas is produced from residual and waste materials. Following the change to environmentally neutral energy sources, we are achieving annual CO2 savings of approximately 175 tons per year.
"This changeover is not the only step we are taking in terms of climate and environmental protection. There always have been many other sustainability measures: for example, we have been handling our parcel shipping in an environmentally neutral way since 2020. And it is certainly not the last step," as Business Development Manager Patrick Kielholz emphasises, reiterating the importance of the issue within the company. "Instead, this is part of a comprehensive sustainability strategy that we are pursuing at JUMBO-Textil and across the entire Group."
