Green Financing

At Jabil, we strive to make ANYTHING POSSIBLE and EVERYTHING BETTER

With more than 260,000 employees in 100+ locations across 30 countries, we are driven by a common purpose: to make the world a better place with the way we treat each other; extend innovative solutions; give back to our local communities; and respect the environment. 

Our purpose comes to life through our commitment to Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) topics and our local, regional and global sustainability efforts. Our Green Financing Framework aligns with, and builds on, our actionable sustainability strategy and goals. 

To learn more about our ESG commitments, efforts and five-year goals, visit our Sustainability page.

AIMING FOR ZERO

In 2020, we launched our first Climate Action Plan, committing to reduce our scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in line with the scientific community’s recommendations.
 

FY25

25% reduction in GHG emissions compared to FY19

 

FY30

50% reduction in GHG emissions compared to FY19

 

While we are actively contributing to all three ESG areas, the Framework is focused on Jabil’s sustainability initiatives that contribute to the achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals related to the environment:

Use of Proceeds

Aligned to Jabil’s overarching environmental strategy, a significant portion of the net proceeds of any Green Financing are expected to be allocated to expenditures related to the following:

  • Clean Transportation
  • Renewable Energy Infrastructure

OUR OPERATIONS & RESOURCES:

Ensuring we operate and manage resources in our sites as efficiently as possible, including:

Project Evaluation & Selection

  • A cross-functional internal committee (the “Sustainable Finance Committee”) will oversee the project evaluation and selection process to ensure selected projects comply with the Framework’s eligibility criteria defined in the Use of Proceeds section and are aligned with Jabil’s sustainability strategy

Management of Proceeds

  • The amount and extent of expenditures on projects meeting the Framework’s eligibility criteria will be tracked and maintained through our internal management reporting process

Reporting

  • We intend to publish a report annually, until full allocation of the net proceeds 
  • We also intend to report on the sustainability impacts of projects financed through green bonds and loans, where feasible

Green Financing Framework

Our Green Financing Framework (the “Framework”) is intended to further align our financings with our sustainability strategy. The Framework provides information about the types of projects that are eligible for financing and refinancing from the proceeds of sustainable finance instruments.

Second Party Opinion

Sustainalytics has provided a second party opinion (SPO) confirming that our Green Financing Framework is credible and impactful and aligns with both the Green Bond Principles 2021 and the Green Loan Principles 2021.

2021 Sustainability Report

In 2021, we developed a new global strategy that’s designed to take our sustainability efforts and impact to the next level. Our 2021 Sustainability Report details our refreshed strategy, new pillars, goals and metrics, as well as stories of our employees and partners who help bring our purpose to life.

Reports

We intend to publish a report annually, until full allocation of the net proceeds.
