UN Goals


Welcome aboard

At Jacobi our aim is to become the most sustainable supplier in the industry. We put our all into our sustainability programmes and do everything we can to have a positive impact on our planet and environment. Our processes are refined so that we make use of any surplus energy, we invest in local communities across the globe, we support our employees in all aspects of their lives, and we make it easy for our customers to recycle their used carbon through us too. You can read more about our various sustainability projects below, perhaps start by watching the below video to find out about how we came to be on this journey.


Our sustainability journey is guided by these 8 KPI’s that run throughout every level of our business, they act as a guidance to help us to become the most sustainable company we can be. No single KPI is more important than another, they are all equal and they all help us to do well, by doing good.

Jacobi's Sustainability Report - Life Cycle Assessment

Sustainability Report – Life Cycle Assessment
Recently we embarked on a study with the University of Maastricht to analyse our product life cycle.


Without our people there would be no Jacobi Group. Our people are without doubt our most important asset and so we continually invest our time, money and efforts into keeping them safe at work, helping them to progress in both career and home life, and encouraging a healthy work:life balance.


As a large organisation, it’s critical that we think about how our operations could affect our planet. We put in measures to make sure it’s always easy for our employees to make the best choices for the environment and refine our processes to make them as sustainable as we can.


At Jacobi we look at all steps of our production and reactivation processes to ensure they’re as environmentally sensitive as possible. We’re continually researching new renewable materials and developing our processes to make them even more sustainable.
