Sustainability is teamwork

Sustainability is more than climate protection. It is the responsible use of resources. But it is also long-term oriented corporate management as a family business and, what is even more important to us, the fair treatment of people. For us, sustainability is teamwork!


We work along the entire supply chain to make our textiles fairer and more environmentally sustainable. We rely on recycled polyester and organic cotton as more sustainable materials. We aim to increase the share of these materials every year.

Recycled Polyester

Polyester is the most important material for us as a team sports specialist. By using recycled polyester we can act more environmentally conscious and still ensure the positive properties. For this, we use old PET bottles, for example, which are cleaned, melted and spun into new yarn. For the World Jersey, we even use old textiles that we recycle.

Organic cotton

In our JAKO FAIR products, we specifically use cotton from controlled organic cultivation. With organic cotton, the use of synthetic chemical pesticides and the use of genetically modified plants is prohibited. In recent years, we have been able to switch many of our cotton items to organic cotton. In the future, we want to continue to push the use of sustainable cotton.

Environmental management

Together with our suppliers, we work on certifications that optimize environmental and chemical management. In the area of chemical management, we require our suppliers not to use hazardous substances that are banned under the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substances List. This enables us to ensure that all components, products and packaging are safe for health.


When it comes to our packaging, we make sure to reduce it where possible, to do without it or to use more environmentally friendly materials. For this purpose, we rely on polybags made of recycled polyester, cardboard banderoles or other alternatives. In addition, we replace individual packaging where possible and bundle our JAKO articles into larger quantity units.


We transport our goods on long distances by ship whenever we can and avoid air freight. In addition, together with DPD, we send your orders by climate-neutral parcel transport. With the photovoltaic system on our company building at the main location in Hollenbach, we produce about 75% of our electricity needs ourselves.
