A sustainable future

Carbon Neutral
In 2014 Jardan officially became a Carbon Neutral organization in accordance with the Australian Government’s National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS). The NCOS gives consistency and environmental integrity to this process by providing requirements for calculating, auditing and offsetting an organisation’s carbon footprint.

Carbon neutral means as a company we have reduced our net greenhouse gas emissions to zero. The scope of this certification covers our business and its operations, but does not include the emissions embedded in our products and their materials. We have achieved our certification through various energy efficiency and waste-minimising initiatives, the acquisition of carbon offsets and a company-wide focus on sustainable practice. Emissions management plans and systems will help monitor and report Jardan’s footprint annually to ensure we stay carbon neutral going forward.

ISO 14001 Certification
In September 2011 Jardan achieved the ISO 14001 certification for continued control and improvement of our environmental policy. ISO 14001 is an international standard developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), which sets out a framework for a specific Environmental Management System (EMS).

Chain of Custody
Jardan has achieved Chain of Custody from 2 of the world’s leading organisations in this field, the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™). The FSC® and PEFC™ have tracked our timber from the forest through processing, manufacturing and finally to the consumer. Chain of Custody is an assurance that these forest products are handled and manufactured under strict regulations that support responsible forest management. By tracking the timber in this matter we helping to support responsible forestry.
