Sustainability

 At JS Hayes Sustainability means "Balancing the requirements of today with the needs of tommorrow"


Over the past 10 years John S Hayes & Associates has developed a range of cost effective paper products that meet the quality needs of its customers whilst minimising the impact on the environment.

We achieve this through:

  • Sustainable Procurement
    We focus on sourcing products and raw materials that reduce our impact on the environment. Our range includes products with Good Environment Choice Australia (GECA) or Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certification and ensures our people think & act with the environment in mind.
  • Manufacturing Partnerships
    Our manufacturing partners here and overseas have been specifically chosen to ensure that our products are sourced and manufactured with an emphasis on environmentally sound principles. We have completed our due diligence to ensure that our sources of timber are only from legally harvested sources and comply with Australian Government regulations (Illegal Logging Prohibition Act 2012).
  • Safety First
    We ensure the safety of our people, customers, contractors & visitors
  • Corporate Citizenship
    Our management operate and are guided by ethical & responsible business practices ensuring our service delivery also supports our customers' sustainability goals.

Environmental Accreditations 

Not only does FSC and GECA certification support the environment,  it gives customers the assurance of our green procurement practices!

 

  • What is Good Environment Choice Australia (GECA) ?
    The GECA program offers global best practice in product certification and eco-labeling to the Australian market. It sets the standard for environmental performance across the life cycle in a way that makes it easy for purchasers to confidently make sustainable choices. These robust standards also help manufacturers take action to improve the environmental and social impacts of their products.
  • What is Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC)
    FSC certification is internationally recognised as having the most rigorous environmental and social standards which define responsible forest management. Before a product can be labelled as FSC certified, each step in the supply chain has been reviewed against FSC standards.
