    Sustainable Products Made with Groundbreaking Technology

    Jacob Holm uses groundbreaking technology and processes to pioneer the use of natural fibers in nonwovens. We began using cotton ten years ago, long before Millennial consumers began developing preferences for natural products. Five years ago, we innovated and patented technology to build the market leading line for dispersible and biodegradable material. As a part of our sustainable processes, cotton fibers are organically grown near our production site and our production site in Soultz, France has completely eliminated waste through recycling, regeneration, and repurposing. We at Jacob Holm make sustainable and innovative products without landfill waste because we care about our local communities and strive to minimize our environmental impact. We are continuously investing in technology to reduce our carbon footprint,

    For the past 10 years we have led the market in sustainability. We were one of the first companies to validate the efforts of our supply chain through the strict requirements of GOTS, SFI®, FSC®, and PEFC ™ ensuring that our forests and raw materials are managed and procured responsibly. We also ensure product safety for eco-checks, ISO certification, and many others to provide customers with high quality nonwovens. Our leadership in sustainable fabrics and solutions includes concern for social responsibility and community engagement. At Jacob Holm we continuously strive towards making a difference by caring for the well-being of our employees, our local communities, and working towards making a positive impact on our future.

    Zero Landfill Waste at Jacob Holm France

    All of Jacob Holm’s production facilities continuously seek new and innovative solutions for processing waste. Our sustainability flagship plant in Soultz, France, is leading the way in the French cradle of textiles. Through thoughtful reuse and recycling of materials, as well as improved internal and external waste management processes, Jacob Holm Soultz reached a zero waste to landfill benchmark in 2013. 

    In addition, the Soultz plant continually implements processes that minimize our use of water— recycling ninety percent of our most precious resource — and energy.

    Soultz is an inspiration within the Jacob Holm family, setting an example for the rest of our facilities. And, we hope, for the rest of the industry.

    Supporting Breastfeeding At Work

    Anyone with a newborn knows that family isn’t something you return to after work: Family is always with you. Jacob Holm values ​​family as an integral part of our business and our social sustainability efforts. This empathy comes from the top: CEO Martin Mikkelsen has four children and takes pride in the fact that Jacob Holm is a family-owned business. That’s why we have a global policy in place to support breastfeeding at work. We make accommodations for anyone who would like to breastfeed at work, for as long as they would like to breastfeed at work, because nothing is more important to sustainability than our children.
