Some of our most powerful ingredients are grown on our farm in South Australia's Adelaide Hills. Our founders selected this region for its pure, unpolluted air and nutrient-rich soil, which we continue to nurture and respect. For more than 30 years, we've grown botanicals here using biodynamic* farming methods that care for our farm as an integrated, living organism. We don't use synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilisers, ensuring that nothing harmful goes into our Earth.
Biodynamics is a truly sustainable approach to farming that respects and cares for our Earth.
Our new, state-of-the-art Natural Beauty Plant, near our farm in the South Australia, is built from recycled, locally made, or low maintenance materials. It was designed for minimal environmental impact, using clean energy wherever possible. Plus, we reuse, recycle or recover everything we use, converting it into energy.
First established in 2012, our annual Tree Planting Day has seen our staff plant over 12,000 carefully selected native trees at our farm in South Australia. These trees improve our carbon footprint, enhance the area's biodiversity and natural waterways, and provide natural, chemical-free protection for our biodynamically-grown botanicals.
We aim to use 100% certified sustainable palm oil-derived ingredients – a healthier and safer alternative to petrochemicals.
One of our initiatives has been moving the majority of our shipment from air-freight to sea-freight, which offers significant emissions savings. Since 2015, our freight management initiative has enabled us to reduce approximately 20% of emissions from transport. Through further analysis, we believe that we can take actions to dramatically reduce our environmental impact in the years ahead.
Jurlique is committed to the principles of the Round Table for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). We aim to use 100% certified (Mass Balance or Segregated) sustainable palm oil-derived ingredients as it is a healthier and safer alternative to petrochemicals. By working closely with our suppliers, we aim to achieve 85% of RSPO certified (Mass Balance or Segregated) by the end of 2019 and 100% RSPO certified (Mass Balance or Segregated) by the end of 2022.
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.
