Jabil sets and tracks environmental progress under four main areas:
We lead by example. As one of the world's largest manufacturers, positively contributing to efforts to slow Climate Change by managing our environmental impacts is not only good for our business, it's the right thing to do. Every Jabil site has a yearly energy reduction goal and we develop annual enterprise strategies to reduce carbon emissions from our operations. That includes investing in renewable energy where it makes sense. Last year, 50 percent of our energy was from renewable sources and we continue to look for opportunities to increase that number. In fiscal year 2018, Jabil reduced carbon emissions by 50 percent.
