We minimise our impact on our planet by placing sustainability at the heart of our manufacturing.
In 2017, we were proud to open Jurlique’s Natural Beauty Plant, our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the heart of South Australia’s Adelaide Hills. As well as helping us develop innovative natural skin care, the Plant dramatically improves our environmental performance. Solar power production, low voltage lighting and efficient temperature controls will drastically reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Extensive water reuse and reduction programs have slashed our usage rates, and the Plant sends zero waste to landfill. Even the materials we used to build it were designed to minimise our footprint by using recycled, low-maintenance or locally made products wherever possible.
We make extensive use of solar power across our Jurlique Farm and our operations, so we can be as energy self-sufficient as possible. We’ve installed advanced video conferencing facilities throughout our global offices to slash the number of flights our staff need to take. We encourage staff to carpool to and from work to reduce emissions, and provide special incentives and rewards to those who do so. And we take a holistic approach to measuring our energy usage, so we can keep looking for new ways to reduce our environmental impact.
As a long-term signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO), we’ve committed to continually reducing the environmental impact of our packaging. We do this in a variety of ways – from repackaging our most popular product lines in new materials that produce less waste and carbon emissions, to using packaging that’s recycled and recyclable wherever we can. And we’re proud to have won the APCO award for being the highest performer in our industry category every year since 2014, as well as its 2017 Outstanding Achievement in Packaging Stewardship award.
