At JZ, it’s not just our products that are green. We’re so committed to reducing our impact on the environment we have established an energy saving forum to consider initiatives and technology with a view to further reducing our carbon foot print.
Our purpose built head office and pack-house was designed and built to be as energy efficient as possible. Below are just a few of its key features:
Building Management System – this intelligent system constantly monitors more than 300 sensors located across the site. Using this data, it efficiently controls all power, heating and lighting requirements so we only use resources where they’re needed, when they’re needed.
Heat Recovery – in order to keep our stock in optimum condition, we keep it chilled in cold storage. Despite being very efficient, our large cold stores produce a lot of heat (just like your fridge at home). We reclaim and recycle this heat and use it to provide all heating and hot water facilities for the entire site.
Voltage Optimisation - in 2014, we installed some very clever equipment which allows us to optimise and regulate the incoming power supply to the site. This means that all of our electrical equipment runs much more efficiently and we are now consuming 14% less power as a result.
Energy sourcing – we chose an energy provider that only uses electricity from renewable sources including wind turbines, solar projects, hydro schemes, marine renewables (wave & tidal energy) and landfill gas.
Recycling – we aim to recycle a minimum of 98% of all waste that we create. We’ll publish our monthly recycling figures here so you can see how well we’re doing.
