Protecting the Environment

At JBC, we think long-term. Our commitment towards the longevity of the organization and long-term positive returns for our stakeholders is synonymous with our responsibility towards the preservation and protection of the environment for future generations. We acknowledge the impact human activity can have on our scarce natural resources and on the environment, and we also acknowledge the right for all to live in a healthy environment.

Wherever we operate, we make sure that we work closely with communities, governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to make a positive difference and help communities prosper. We believe that our business objectives and sustainable protection of the environment go hand in hand. Our aim is to share the benefits of our operations with our employees, and be active and responsible contributors towards the community and economic and social development.

Over the past few years, we have worked towards aligning our environmental efforts with our business performance, enforcing stronger environmental policies and actions at JBC.

Compliance is one of our fundamentals and the basis for our environmental efforts, and we are confident that effective compliance can only lead to a win-win situation for all stakeholders. We have set a goal for ourselves of not allowing any enforcement actions to arise, and we believe that this has led to best practices in overall compliance across the company.

But because we understand that there is always room for improvement, we continue to evolve our environment-related management systems and procedures to help us improve our performance. Our internal audit processes help us stay in check and minimizes the margin for error within our company and beyond.
