SUSTAINABILITY AT JBS USA
At JBS USA, we believe sustainability means responsibly meeting the needs of the present while improving the ability of future generations to responsibly meet their own needs. We achieve sustainable outcomes by managing the three traditional pillars of social responsibility, economic viability and environmental stewardship.
In 2016, we defined and benchmarked approximately 30 key performance indicators across more than 60 facilities, in the areas of water, animal welfare, team member health and safety, product integrity, and energy and climate change. Each facility identified 2020 improvement goals and these goals were aggregated to create business unit reduction targets and, ultimately, JBS USA consolidated 2020 goals.
