At Jurlique we recognise the importance of all 17 global goals set by the United Nations in order to achieve peace and prosperity for people and the planet. According to the nature of our business and the environment in which we operate, we have been working on eight goals.
At Jurlique, we know the importance of putting personal health and wellbeing first. All employees have the option to purchase extra leave and partake in our monthly wellbeing programs, while our farm employees receive physiotherapy to look after their physical health. Outside of the company, we partner with charities that look after women’s wellbeing.
At Jurlique we’re committed to gender equality. We ensure there are no pay gaps between male and female employees and the majority of leadership roles within our organisation are held by women.
We have solar panels at our farm and plant. South Australia tracks to have 75% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025, so we’re planning further investment for additional solar panels and battery storage.
At Jurlique, we strive to provide fair work opportunities for our employees, suppliers and community.
Our farm, office and factory in South Australia are located outside urban areas, keeping our employee population out of the city. We have also planted more than 12,000 native trees to improve our carbon footprint, as well as enhance the area’s biodiversity and natural waterways.
Our Natural Beauty Plant features efficient temperature control, renewable energy, low-voltage lighting and usage of rainwater tanks. We also include sustainability into the business process, with our Life Cycle Assessment for packaging, Supplier Code of Conduct, and new employee induction.
We are actively committed to reducing our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions1. In our offices, our Global Switch‑off campaign educates employees in ways to reduce energy consumption, and a new video conference system has led to a reduction in business trips.
At our farm, we use organic, biodynamic* farming methods free from synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers to optimise the rich and fertile soil
From the practices on our farm, to the way we look after our planet and our people, sustainability is at the core of Jurlique - in every sense of the word.
1Scope 1 and 2 emissions include fuel and electricity usage. Scope 3 emissions include our travel, waste management and final product transport.
