Sustainability & Corporate Social Responsibility

J.A.K Marketing is committed to the protection and preservation of the world’s ecosystem by conducting our productivity and operations in a responsible and sustainable manner. As a business we recognise that reducing the environmental impact of our activities is very important. We strive to achieve environmental excellence within the veterinary industry and have been successfully accredited for ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management)

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 14001 is a generic international standard which provides guidelines for organisations to manage their environmental impact and accreditation helps guide our environmental management system. It provides a framework for us to continually measure and improve the way that we use and dispose of natural resources as well as reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. 

This achievement demonstrates our commitment to go above the standard legal requirements and be proactive in our approach to the way in which we operate the business, striving for continual improvement in all that we do. 

Corporate Social Responsibility

J.A.K Marketing have supported Orangutan Veterinary Aid (OVAID) since 2015. OVAID is a zero-salary charity dedicated to saving orangutans. They provide veterinary equipment, medicines, and practical veterinary support to assist rescue groups and centre in Indonesia and Malaysia. The charity works relentlessly to spread awareness of the negative effects of deforestation for the orangutan, along with countless other wildlife species and human populations. 

J.A.K regularly donate money form the sale of Purfect Disposable Drapes and send consumables and equipment to support the rescue centres and training and development of staff. More information on the work undertaken by OVAID or to offer support can be found here.

Co-founders Sarah and Nigel Hicks explain… 

The welfare of rescued and rehabilitant orangutans is our priority together with supporting the veterinary teams that care for them and we cannot thank the whole team at JAK Marketing enough for all that they do for us year in and year out. A phone call to JAK in Yorkshire never fails to bring results - if what we need is not on the shelf (very rare), it somehow miraculously appears in double quick time.

In our commitment to sustainability, we actively work with our couriers to reduce CO2 emissions during the delivery process. We prioritize efficiency in packing and loading, optimizing transport space and repurposing all suitable cardboard we receive. We continually innovate and assess strategies to enhance our eco-friendliness. Last year marked a significant step as we transitioned from plastic packing tape to environmentally conscious Kraft paper tape. This switch guarantees that your orders arrive safely and securely, free from unnecessary non-recyclable materials. It's the meticulous attention to such details that sets us apart and significantly contributes to our commercial waste management efforts, substantially reducing both waste material and our carbon footprint. We pride ourselves on these conscientious choices, and remain steadfast in our dedication to protect and preserve the environment.
