Sustainability

Working towards a fair circular economy

Jugaad is the Social Business branch of the Serioplast Group which invests patient capital in sustainable projects aimed at eradicating poverty and marginalization. Current projects address the social and environmental issue of plastic waste. Jugaad works at engaging with waste picking communities and disadvantaged groups with the purpose of helping them to receive a fair livelihood, transparent working conditions and economic self-sufficiency over time.
The final aim is to contribute to a social and economic transformation of the waste value chain where the waste is turned into an opportunity for social empowerment and equitable local growth.

Energy Footprint

Carbon footprint and emissions

We introduce efficiency in energy generation and consumption to streamline the carbon footprint and emissions of our industrial operations. This drives us to constantly increase the efficiency of all our production machines and utilities and to promote a smart and integrated internal energy production combined with a high degree of energy recovery (photovoltaic, cogeneration, trigeneration, building heating with waste-heat).

Transport

We work at streamlining our transport supply chain by minimizing transportation distances. We have set-up production plants all over the world to meet customer needs locally. Where possible, we have opened client in-house operations and developed integrated logistics solutions.

Reducing our footprint

We strive to reduce the carbon footprint of energy purchased through continuous reduction of the CO2/kWh amount in the energy mix, as well as the carbon footprint of our main industrial processes.
