Last year the government launched the 25 Year Environment Plan (YEP) outlining procedures to create a greener future and improve the environment, within a generation.
Among a number of environmental goals such as clean air, plentiful water and thriving wildlife, the 25 YEP committed to enhancing biosecurity by using natural resources more sustainably and efficiently; working towards the governments target of zero avoidable waste by 2050. For such ambitions to be achieved, all commercial organisations need to accept corporate social responsibility for minimising waste. At Jacksons, we accomplish this by maximising the value obtained from our resources by producing quality products that last a generation.
All our timber materials are supplied from PEFC and FSC certified sustainable sources to ensure responsible management of the world’s forests. Moreover, each timber component is subject to our specially formulated ISO 9001 accredited Jakcure pressure treatment process that assures the highest level of penetration and saturation, providing extraordinary protection against wood rot and insect attack. Unlike other timber preservatives, the Jakcure formula conforms to B5 8417, meaning that it is non-corrosive, non-flammable non-odorous and harmless to biological life forms, making it an eco-friendly option to alternative treatment methods. This unique process allows us to endorse all our products with a 25 year Timber Guarantee, minimising timber consumption by providing quality that lasts. Similarly, we adhere to equally high standard when manufacturing our steel products, ensuring all components are powder coated and galvanised to protect from rust and corrosion, assuring that they have a 25 year Service Life Guarantee.
Sustainable quality products aren’t Jacksons only method of waste reduction and we also employ a Lean production system throughout the manufacturing process to ensure unnecessary wastage is minimised without sacrificing productivity efficiency. By streamlining production and ensuring each stage of the manufacturing process receives materials and components only when needed, Jacksons is able to maintain a Just In Time (JIT) production technique that is both cost effective and eco-friendly.
When you choose Jacksons for commercial security solutions you aren’t just investing in a high quality product with low lifetime cost but actively contributing to building a sustainable future for generations to come. Support the 25 YEP by obtaining our 25 year Guarantee.
