Jan Zandbergen renew their BJF partnership

By | Allgemein

Jan Zandbergen has been the proud sponsor of the Black Jaguar Foundation (BJF) since 2015, and this month renewed their membership with the BJF. For them, the recent events have meant that supporting sustainable initiatives has never been more vital.

“Exactly with what is going on, we choose to continue to support BJF. Restoring our planet is now more important than ever. Oxygen, sufficient fresh water and plants that are necessary for making medicines, nature provides it all for us. We should cherish that.” – Peter-Paul Zandbergen, CEO

While supporting our reforestation work in Brazil, Jan Zandbergen is also making changes to their own business in the Netherlands. “As a family business, we are very aware of the importance of caring for future generations,” said Jochem Versloot, grandson of Jan Zandbergen and director, co-owner of the company. “We are therefore continuously looking for sustainable improvements in our business processes.”

These improvements have included diversifying their range and adding plant-based products, under the new branding, PLNT, and they have recently also been looking closely at their logistics operations, making the more sustainable choice to opt for new, lower carbon LNG trucks, which save on average 20% of the CO2 emissions.

  • Expanded our community of restoration & mapping partners in Brazil.

The award-winning sculptor Chris Tap has done it again! After 9 months of incredible dedication and craftsmanship, Chris has completed a Life-Sized sculpture of the majestic Black Jaguar as a gift to BJF’s exclusive sponsor-partners. The first seven of these magnificent sculptures are already being showcased in the reception halls of our exclusive sponsors, serving as a wonderful symbol of their positive involvement.

The life-sized jaguar is the fourth and final statue to complete our happy family of four, ranging from smaller statues of just the jaguar head up to this full form. The statue is available for our Diamond Friends within our corporate package. When you receive a life-sized statue, you will also receive a personalized brochure, outlining a tailor-made explanation of how your company became part of one of the largest reforestation projects on earth. Together, the statue and the brochure serve as an amazing way to capture interest about the BFJ and the positive involvement our Diamond friends engage with our mission.
