SUSTAINABILITY & RECYCLING
J&E Sports has been working on Corporate Social Responsibility for years. We look beyond just installing and maintaining artificial turf. We would, therefore, like to provide the market with sustainable artificial turf applications. Not only in terms of life span but certainly also by using sustainable materials and a sustainable working method.
From raw material to the end product: J&E Sports wants to have as much insight and influence as possible on sustainability in the chain. Together with our chain partners, we work on the development of sustainable synthetic turf systems and recycling solutions.
In doing so, the cost aspect is not lost sight of. We are of the opinion that sustainable entrepreneurship does not have to cost extra money. Our aim is, therefore, to provide the market with sustainable applications without extra costs.
THESE ARE OUR STARTING POINTS;
- Minimizing the use of materials
- Use of clean materials
- Use of recyclable materials
- Applying clean production methods
- Reuse of materials
- Limiting transport movements
- Extending the lifespan
Together with Antea Group Sport, J&E Sports is part of GBN Artificial Grass Recycling B.V. This is a collaboration between GBN Group and various chain partners.
These cooperating companies will open the first circular processing plant for the recycling of end-of-live artificial turf pitches in the spring of 2020. This will provide a sustainable solution to an urgent social problem.
For more information about this cooperation, we would like to refer to the following news article;
