Energy

Planet Passionate

Joris Ide aims to maintain a healthy energy status and to increase our direct use and on-site generation of renewable energy. We are actively contributing to the world’s renewable energy mix, by installing more and more solar panels on our rooftops. Currently we have already installed 10 000 solar panels across the JI Division.

Water

Planet Passionate

As urban areas spread, and the earth continues to warm up, there is an urgent need for us to manage our water resources better. To play our part, we started conserving water at our sites through process recycling. The goal is to harvest 100 million litres of rainwater every year at our offices and manufacturing sites by 2030. This will help to reduce mains water use, lower rainwater/stormwater runoff, and improve the quality of local waterways.

Carbon

planet passionate

Joris Ide actively commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We want to achieve a zero carbon production CO₂ by 2030, and a 50% reduction in the CO₂ intensity of our products by 2030. To achieve this goal our CO₂ emissions are closely monitored. Next to that we also aim to accelerate the shift to zero emission cars and reduce air pollution

Circularity

planet passionate

The construction industry is the world's largest consumer of raw materials, which means there are great opportunities to make a material difference to the environment by reusing and recycling products. One of our other Planet Passionate goals is to achieve zero waste to landfill by 2030.

Everyday business

Being Planet Passionate goes beyond our targets. We hope that people across our group will find ways to be Planet Passionate every day in their own businesses, taking actions to make a difference to climate change, circularity and the protection of our natural environment.
