Our First Ingredient is Pure Water

Without water, Jacob Holm wouldn’t be in business. In fact, it’s the main ingredient in our products. That’s why we make water quality central to our sustainability goals, working intimately with the local municipalities where our plants are based to ensure rigorous standards are maintained. As part of those standards, we closely monitor every single production run for chemical, biological and physical contamination in our in-house laboratories.

Looking toward the future, we know our standards will be impossible to achieve without pure and abundant water, so we’re acting now to ensure it will be available. In addition to recycling up to 90% of our water at some plants, we’ve committed to reducing our global water consumption by five percent by 2025. That’s a goal we can meet through our innovative technology and continuously improving production efficiency, driven by our conscious dependence on our most precious resource.
