Partnering for Sustainability

Akamai

There are few things Jabil employees like more than a challenge. So, when Akamai Technologies, Inc. asked how we could help them reach their sustainability goals, our global team quickly responded.

Collaborating across geographies and functions, and less than two months later, we reduced the size of their packaging and integrated recycled content. This allowed trucks to be more efficiently packed and reduced the number of pallets needed by 40 percent.

The packaging redesign used approximately 14 metric tons of new recycled content per year, was less expensive, and reduced Akamai’s carbon emissions by 836 metric tons annually.

“You can’t help but consider sustainability now.”
— Scott Beardsley, Sr. Business Unit Director, Jabil

Our partnership with Akamai, a multi-billion dollar company offering intelligent-edge platforms for securing and delivering digital experiences, leveraged the resources of two purpose-driven organizations, creating a great product while minimizing its environmental footprint. That’s impact.
