Old archives customers offer to to be destroyed by Jalema, are converted to Satino Black hygienic paper by Van Houtum. In this way an optimal form of Corporate Social Responsibility is realized and businesses are given the opportunity to take responsibility for their residual and thus giving shape to their sustainability goals.
For over 65 years Jalema is specialized in the production of filing products, safe storage of static archives and managing dynamic archives. Shredding is also a part of this. In that matter Jalema picks up old paper archives to be destroyed at their costumers address. If desired by the costumer, the records can be picked up directly in the storage place. Archives which Jalema keeps stored for its customers and whose expiration date is reached, can also be destroyed at the customers request. Jalema also optionally destroys the records which are digitized by Jalema. In this way, unburdening the customer or as it is called, 'Stop One Organizing'.
Corporate Social Responsibility at it's best
All records are collected by Jalema. The folders or binders are emptied and then sorted. Folders, binders, suspension points and mechanisms are, just as intensively colored or plastic tabs collected separately and then made ready for reuse or removed separately. The white and pastel colored paper, the intensively colored and other paper and paperboard are neatly deposited in containers and safely transported to the nearby paper factory of Van Houtum in Swalmen.
So there is a minimum number of transport operations and the old paper, is used as a raw material for the production of new paper solely in the Netherlands. The sorting is done by Jalema with the deployment of a group of people with intellectual impairments. In this way, these people are offered a meaningful daytime activity and a chance to participate in the labor process. The storage of archives that are being destroyed and the sorting work, takes place, supervised, in a secure indoor space at Jalema.
