Corporate Social Responsibility is a matter of course for A. Jansen B.V. Our ambition is to run a company with respect for People, Planet and Profit. In addition to sustainable production based on a circular economy, other CSR pillars, such as social enterprise, safety and business integrity, also play a role.
The concept of circularity is in our DNA. We recycle construction and demolition waste into certified granules, which we then use in our concrete products and concrete mortar. We also recycle car shredder materials, discarded goods and other shredder flows into reusable materials.
Ecologically sound demolition
For A. Jansen B.V., the cycle starts with the demolition of buildings. The built environment offers the base materials for the future. This has prompted us to demolish these buildings after their end-of-life phase in a sustainable manner, a process also known as urban mining.
Reducing our CO2 footprint is an ambition we have been monitoring since 2018 and which we publish in the CO2 performance ladder. A. Jansen B.V. is certified for rung 3.

Reducing the footprint of the materials we market has top priority.
EcoChain software offers us the possibility of calculating the ECI value (Environmental Cost Indicator) of our concrete mixtures. Using this ECI value of concrete and other factors, the housing and public utilities construction sector can calculate the EPB (Environmental Performance of Buildings). The civil engineering sector needs the ECI value for MEAT tenders.
A. Jansen B.V. is PSE-certified (Performance ladder Social Enterprise): we have been on rung 2 since 2017. Our involvement in the community also manifests itself in activities such as sponsoring sports clubs and cultural events.
