Jabil strives to conduct its business in a sustainable manner with the lowest possible environmental impact. We enforce strict compliance with environmental standards at all our plants, integrate sustainable technology practices into our operations, and continually pursue the latest innovations in sustainable product design.
In 2008, Jabil strengthened its commitment to the environment by implementing a global environmental management system — Global 14001. Today, it is one of the largest certified systems of its kind in the electronics manufacturing industry and continues to grow, enabling a long-term carbon emissions and green-energy effort. The backbone of our environmental management approach, it sets global expectations for our business units and has helped us manage and reduce our global carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption.

Jabil's Do Your 2 Program challenges every employee to do two things to support our carbon and energy reduction goals. The call to action has spurred employees to invent new ways to conserve both in major systems and everyday operations, helping Jabil to reduce costs and emissions.
