    Donation to Diaper bank of NC

    Jacob Holm is a family business, and we believe all families should have access to proper hygiene. Though we’re most known for our consumer wipes products, we’re also heavily involved in the hygiene market, producing a range of diaper components. ]

    As part of our commitment to social sustainability, we were excited to make a donation to the diaper bank of North Carolina as part of their inaugural fundraising gala in 2019.

    Research shows that providing families with access to diapers leads to improved physical health in children and better mental health in their parents. Another benefit is improved employment consistency for working parents, which contributes to both social and economic sustainability.

    A grassroots non-profit founded by moms, the Diaper Bank has made huge strides toward ensuring no baby in North Carolina goes without the basic necessity of diapers. It’s a simple step toward the overall goal of greater family stability, and Jacob Holm is proud to be a part of it.

    Jacob Holm Supports United Way

    Each year, Jacob Holm workers foster social sustainability in the most direct way possible: by giving from their own paychecks. Our employees support the United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County with tens of thousands of dollars yearly, and we’re proud to say that we match their donations. In addition to this direct monetary support, we encourage our workers to take an active role in helping United Way, offering paid time off for volunteer events such as the United Way Days of Caring, and other community events like building and renovation projects at local schools . In the United Way, we’ve found a valuable partner to make use of our employees’ generosity and community spirit, and we look forward to our ongoing partnership.

    Celebrating 20+ Years with Our Suppliers

    Jacob Holm proudly celebrates the fact that our relationships with our suppliers have lasted, on average, twenty to twenty-five years. These relationships form an integral part of our business ecosystem, enabling us to create our innovative products. As such, we deeply value our suppliers and continually endeavor to support supply chain security, a top concern of many of our customers, for whom consistency and quality are paramount. When possible, we shop local: Many of the suppliers to our American facilities are themselves located in the US. While we’re always open to new partnerships, Jacob Holm continues the legacy reliability and dedication that has kept us growing with our suppliers for so long.

    Every Employee is Bonus-Eligible

    Jacob Holm believes that social and business sustainability are not competing goals. In fact, they’re complimentary. In both a profitable business and a sustainable society, workers are paid well. That’s why every single Jacob Holm employee — everywhere on the globe, whether in production or administration — is eligible for an end-of-year performance bonus. Based on key performance indicators at the plant level, and individual accomplishment, we hope these bonuses are just one way we let our workers know how highly they’re valued.

    Investing $150M in Minority-Owned Businesses

    As part of our conscious effort toward social sustainability, Jacob Holm tracks every penny we spend, making sure we contribute to the diversity of the marketplace by investing in minority-owned businesses. In 2018, this number amounted to $ 150 million — from our Candler, NC, plant alone!

    The majority of that money was invested in woman-owned ARM Trucking, a small transfer company based in neighboring Waynesville, NC, but we’re also tracking our investments in Hispanic, Native American, African-American and other communities.

    Since 2018, Jacob Holm has created a new position called Vice President of Sourcing. The current Vice President, Erik Lomholdt, leads the charge to increase transparency in our supply chain, tracking diversity in supply chain, at all plants, with an eye toward sustainability. This is in addition to our already-rigorous assessment of our suppliers, equipment, training, safety and end-product quality. 

    While we’re known for taking care of our workers, Jacob Holm believes that sustainability requires more: Caring not just about our own employees, but every person in the marketplace.

    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.
