"Jiffy products have always been basically environmentally friendly. As a growing media supplier, we are now focusing on building on those green qualities to be a truly sustainable company. Above all, 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 it is going about that mission," the company announces.
Jiffy’s first report and five-year plan for sustainability
Jiffy’s sustainability strategy is aligned with multiple UN sustainable development goals (UN SDG 12, 13, 14, and 15) and is focused on four pillars:
1. Use fewer fossil plastics and polymers
2. Reduce our energy, water, and CO2 footprint
3. Play a part in the circular economy
4. Increase our range of sustainable raw materials
The report and plan set out what Jiffy has already achieved. It is also transparent about the challenges it faces as a company and industry. And it explains what it’s doing 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 it is developing, initiatives it is taking, and where it wants to be by 2025.
