Corporate Responsibility is a core focus within Just Brands, and this is also reflected in our own operations. We are implementing a CR strategy in all parts of our organisation to improve our impact. Within the Just Brands headquarters, warehouse and stores we focus for example on waste, saving energy, and the use of paper. We have recently started with the expansion of our headquarters. While building this new office, we are focusing on a durable, self-sufficient heating system and LED lighting, just as in our current building. Together with our transport and packaging partners we are working hard towards a more sustainable future.

Our warehouse is located in the Netherlands and in 2016 we introduced a new packaging machine. This machine custom cuts the boxes per order, eliminating all wasted space. Thanks to this machine Just Brands reduces the transportation of air. Pack, press, seal and ready to go.
The Just Brands headquarters controls its internal climate by using Concrete Core Activation (CCA). By implementing this system for climate control, we keep down our day-to-day energy use. Underneath our headquarters, tons of water are stored between layers of sand. Together with a heating pump, these layers of sand store water on a leveled temperature. In summer, the CCA uses cool water from the ground to lower the temperature in our offices, saving up to 95% of energy. In winter, the CCA uses the stored water to warm up to building, saving up to 50% of energy.
