We are dedicated to preserving the earth as a habitat, and not just for people.
Our climate goals: JUMBO-Textil will be aCO2eneutral company by 2040, and not just at our locations in Sprockhövel and Wuppertal. Along the entire value chain – from raw material production through to recycling or reusing our products at the end of their life cycle – we seek to ensure our climate neutrality.
Sustainable energy sources
At our head office in Sprockhövel, we exclusively use green power. The electricity for our production and administration in Sprockhövel is generated from solar, wind and water power. We also generate heat in a climate-neutral way: via CO2-compensation, we finance measures that offset unavoidable emissions. In this way we have achieved annual CO2e savings of approximately 500 tons per year since 2021.*
* The CO2e balance was calculated using the ecocockpit tool of the Effizienz-Agentur NRW.
Yarns from recycled materials
As our contribution to marine protection, we are increasingly processing yarns made from recycled plastics in our products. Thanks to Newlife by Sinterama and Repetable™ by Noyfil, we already have access to recycled yarns for braiding, grids and nets today. Repetable™ is made of 85 percent post-consumer PET bottles, that is, of used plastic bottles, while this is even 100 percent for Newlife. By 2040, we seek to multiply the use of recycled yarns of this kind.
Our contribution towards protecting biodiversity is made by the numerous insects and other meadow animals in the 1,000-square-meter wildflower meadow around our head office. Together with the city of Sprockhövel, we have been able to expand this even further: the city provided the neighbouring property for this purpose, while the seeds came from us. Our “bee meadow” is a colourful piece of the earth. One look out the window and we know exactly why sustainable management is so close to our hearts.
