Type of certification

Organisation.

How long have you been certified carbon neutral?

Since 2013.

Why are you carbon neutral?

We take full responsibility of our products throughout their entire life-cycle and drive resource efficiency and sustainable business practices throughout our operations. We strive to be a market leader for furniture manufacturers and retailers.

What are the benefits of your carbon neutral certification?

Jardan committed in 2016 to implementing a holistic and transparent sustainability strategy and publicly reporting on our progress. To meet this commitment and assist the organisation to deliver on the various goals of its sustainability policy, the team at Jardan have developed a comprehensive management framework to guide the organisation’s activities and decision making to 2025. This has allowed us to improve our staff engagement making us a desirable place to work. We have also been able to market our business as environmental and sustainable. Reductions in energy bills have also been achieved.

What offset projects do you support?

Jardan is proudly supporting the Max Waters Reforestation Project 2.

Why did you choose these projects?

The Max Waters project plants mallee and tree-form eucalyptus strategically through four farms in the Great Southern region of Western Australia, near the towns of Wagin, Quairading and Kojonup, expressly for the purpose of carbon abatement. Plantings are providing forest cover and stability along creek lines, in strips through light paddocks which will allow continued grazing in the paddocks and in small blocks within paddocks.

How can the community support you?

By considering our products when making furniture or homeware purchases.

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?

We are currently investigating a number of options for increasing solar generation across our sites. However, installing behind the meter solar on all possible sites is likely to only deliver part of our 30 per cent renewable target. This will mean that we will have to pursue offsite opportunities for the supply of renewable energy in coming years. Jardan’s ongoing efforts to reduce emissions reflects a precautionary based risk management approach for mitigating the increasing impacts of climate change.

What has been the impact of your action?

Our ongoing commitment has cut emissions by more than 8,400 tonnes in six years, equivalent to taking 2,000 cars off the road.

What advice would you give to a business considering certification?

It is a worthwhile certification to assist in sustainable business practices as it formally acknowledges your achievements.
