As the French leader in collective hygiene, we believe in the role we have to play in our shared future. This is why eco-responsibility is one of the key pillars of our strategy today. At JVD, every detail counts, from design to recycling, by way of production, transport, use and customer service. In other words, you will only find sustainable products at JVD, designed and manufactured for durability, in the name of your well-being and that of the planet.
Eco-responsibility has been one of JVD’s pillars from the very beginning. The company’s commitment on this subject only grows stronger every day and now concerns each of its different levels. JVD is dedicated to the idea of transmission and makes it a point of honour to play an active role in an ecological transition which looks out for everyone’s well-being.
WORKING AND PRESERVINGWe have always been convinced that the strategy of today should be to improve the future of tomorrow. All the teams at JVD strive actively to think of everything and to make a real difference. From design to manufacturing, transport to use and customer service to recycling, we know that each detail counts.
ECO-DESIGNWhether we’re talking about our next-gen jet air hand dryers which reduce energy consumption and eliminate the use of any consumables, our flow-reducing soap dispensers or our foaming soap which drops consumptions levels by four, our R&D Department endeavours to design our products to be ecoresponsible.
RAW MATERIALS AND
PARTNERSEco-responsibility also concerns our choice of raw materials and partners. Whenever possible, we prioritize partners located as close as possible to our production unit so as to reduce the environmental impact of our transport. For years, we have been striving to ensure that expertise endures and so encourage our suppliers’ capacity for innovation. Out of concern for our social impact, we work with associations from the social and solidarity economy.
MANUFACTURINGAll our waste is sorted and collected before being sent to a
treatment and recycling centre. For example, we reuse our suppliers’ cardboard boxes for our shipments, and we grind used paper and then use it as wedges for our shipped products. What about the rest? It is recycled or reused by other companies in the region!
LOGISTICSOur packaging is designed with a two fold objective: to protect the integrity of the transported goods and to serve as an installation diagram. These simple, sensible optimizations further reduce our carbon footprint.
OBSOLESCENCEAt JVD, our products are designed and tested to be repairable and to repair them. Our appliances’ spare parts are available for 10 years. Quality products meant to be used and to run for the long term.
AU QUOTIDIENJVD fait assembler certains de ses kits par Facon ouest, un institut qui offre du travail dans les milieux pénitenciers. Les kits sont constitués de vis, chevilles et autres petits matériaux qui servent à assembler nos produits. La mise sous film des tubes ampoules des désinsectiseurs est effectué par l’ESAT, un organisme réservé aux personnes en situation de handicap et visant leur insertion ou réinsertion sociale et professionnelle.
STILL STANDING TOGETHER
Now that poverty is affecting more people in France as a result of COVID, it is vital to ensure that food distribution is not disrupted by the pandemic. To that end, the teams at JVD have provided 500 hand sanitizing stations for the food aid charity Les Restos du Coeur’s drop-in centres all across the country. 200 sanitizing stations were also donated to Emmaüs Solidarité, for its offices, sales outlets, drop-in facilities and emergency housing locations.
ACT FOR OUR PLANET PROJECT
JVD’s commitment to CSR is a collective one, which is why, with the participation of all our employees, we created the Act for Our Planet project. The goal was to come up with ideas for actions that the company could implement to reduce our carbon footprint. This internal initiative gave rise to many positive changes in our daily work lives (nondisposable alternatives for cups and water bottles, purchase of electric bikes, installation of electric vehicle charging stations, etc.)
SINCE THE LAUNCH OF THE OPERATION
1 HAND DRYER = 1 TREE
SUPPORT FOR THE ASSOCIATION
In parallel, JVD is involved with the Nantesbased Providenti’ELLES, which supports women suffering from isolation, by providing the association with all the necessary hygiene equipment (hand sanitizing stations, hand dryers, electric kettles, etc.).
WHAT ARE WE
1 HAND DRYER =
HYGIENE KIT GIVEN AWAY
For more than 35 years, JVD has been committed to a healthier world. It is therefore only natural only natural that we join the Eau&Vie association in its fight fot permanent access to quality running water and the development of collective awareness about the importance of hygiene in deprived urban neighbourhoods. We also wanted to contribute to the dissemination og our values by engaging our clients in this common perspective. Therefore, we have joined forces with the Eau&Vie association and set up a partnership to fight for access to running water for all.
