The transformation process
Our sustainability course
Our vision and our mission summarize the three central sustainability pillars environment, people and sustainable management in clear statements. For us, they are a compass and set the direction for our sustainability course and the transformation process that has begun – both internally and externally.
Our way to a climate-friendly future
Climate and energy
All actors in the value chain, including us as a manufacturer of plastic packaging, have a responsibility to drive the transformation to climate-friendly procurement as well as production and recycling of our products.
Resources are finite
Resources and Recycling economy
True circular economy is more than just the use of recycled materials. It requires action at many levels and the cooperation of numerous actors along the value chain. We have a clear vision of how the absolute demand for resources must be met by a functioning circular economy.
Thinking and acting sustainably
Product benefit and designs
Plastic packaging, just like packaging made of other materials, does not belong in the environment or in the oceans after use. At the same time, packaging must be designed for high-quality recyclability across all packaging materials right from the start. Our Research and Development department works throughout the group to support effective recyclability.

People at Jokey
As an employer, Jokey bears responsibility for its employees. This ranges from fair remuneration and the strengthening of ecological awareness to diverse social factors such as the promotion of resilience or the protection of health.
Rethinking the value chain
The examination of climate and resources with regard to one’s own products must also include a view of the upstream and downstream value chain. This is the only way to identify and avoid deficits, risks and social and ecological impacts.
