Sustainable product development & resource efficiency
Excessive material consumption causes negative environmental impacts. JOST products and packaging are designed with a strong emphasis on sustainability, aiming to mitigate these impacts by using materials efficiently.
This practice includes aspects such as reducing energy and water consumption, minimising raw material waste, and implementing lean manufacturing processes. This reduces waste, minimises the extraction of natural resources, and lowers the carbon footprint associated with manufacturing.
In 2022, we were able to reduce our CO2 emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2) per production hour by 15.0 % compared to 2021 and by 35.2 % compared to the base year 2020.
Products are engineered to use materials efficiently. This reduces waste, minimises the extraction of natural resources, and lowers the carbon footprint associated with manufacturing.
JOST's products are specifically designed for weight optimisation. Lightweight components, such as aluminium landing legs and lightweight fifth wheels, not only enhance fuel efficiency in transportation but also reduce emissions. Lowering the weight of products directly contributes to a more sustainable supply chain and environmental footprint.
JOST's use of biodegradable high-performance lubricants minimises environmental contamination. This ensures that our products are not only efficient but also environmentally friendly, reducing the ecological impact over the product's lifecycle.
Occupational safety and health:
The introduction of assistance systems like KKS, Drawbar Finder, and King Pin Finder in JOST's products enhances occupational safety and health protection for users.
By focusing on these aspects, we strive to create products that are not only efficient but also environmentally responsible. This commitment to sustainable product design reduces material waste, promotes energy efficiency, and contributes to a healthier and more environmentally friendly operation in line with our sustainability principles.
