Jiffy products have always been basically environmentally friendly. As a leading growing media supplier we are now focusing on building on those green qualities to be a truly sustainable company.
Alongside its own sustainability improvements, Jiffy aims to work with customers to support them in their sustainable horticulture journey. The Jiffy Group Sustainability Report & Five-Year Plan sets out how we’re going about that mission.
Jiffy’s first report and five-year plan for sustainability
Jiffy’s sustainability strategy is aligned with multiple UN sustainable development goals (UNDG 12, 13, 14, and 15) and is focused on four pillars:
- Use fewer fossil plastics and polymers
- Reduce our energy, water, and CO2 footprint
- Play a part in the circular economy
- Increase our range of sustainable raw materials
The report and plan set out what we have already achieved but is also transparent about the challenges we face as a company and industry. And it explains what we can do to change things around where needed.
Plastic-free Jiffy-7 and 7C
Did you know Jiffy is on track to eliminating PP/PE plastics netting on a major product group by the end of 2022? Switching Jiffy-7 and Jiffy-7C pellets and growblocks to biodegradable PLA will lower its fossil plastic consumption by around 100 tons a year.
In the report, you will find more details about additional solutions we are developing, initiatives we are taking, and where we want to be by 2025.
