PPE Manufacturer, JSP, has been given a Gold Award from the Supply Chain Sustainability School, a virtual learning environment that aims to help construction suppliers and sub-contractors develop their sustainability knowledge and competence.
The concept of the School was initially developed by Skanska and was launched in partnership with Willmott Dixon, Kier, Sir Robert McAlpine, Lend Lease, Morgan Sindall and Aggregate Industries. Since then, other construction companies such as BAM Construct UK, Balfour Beatty, Carillion, Wates and ISG have also joined.
JSP has managed to achieve this Gold Award through significant investment. Solar PV installation in 2014 generates enough solar power to ensure on average one in three JSP Safety Helmets are made by the sun. On a really sunny day, 100% of its Safety Helmets are manufactured using renewable energy.
In addition to this, JSP adopts a no-waste policy on site and is continually improving the methodologies used during manufacture to ensure a safer, more sustainable future by making products 100% recyclable, concentrating on Product Lifecycle Management and educating its workforce.
