Smart Investment Brings Both Business and Environmental Sustainability

Investing in one aspect of sustainability often makes another aspect possible. Jacob Holm’s supply chain forms the foundation of all our processes. Our sustainable business – and our commitment to quality – depend on its reliability. That’s why we’ve recently invested in the warehousing and converting capabilities of our Sontara® facility in Asturias, Spain. Not only is our supply chain stronger, we’ve been able to reduce our overall shipping load, leading to a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. According to the European Chemical Transport Associations, this annual reduction in greenhouse gas amounts to 150,000 kilograms, or 150 metric tons. That’s the equivalent of saving the emissions of a car driving 750,000 kilometers, equal to nineteen times around the earth’s equator or to the moon and back!
