To advance our sustainability mission – and our customers’ – we work as hard as possible to make products
that have minimal impact on the planet while delivering technology that improves the lives of millions.
Our vast and complex supply chain is one area in which we work extremely hard to ensure a sustainable outcome.
More than 21,000 Jabil suppliers across 100+ commodity categories were added to our Vendor Risk Management Index
This group accounts for approximately US$7 billion of supplier spend, with over 40,000 vendors supporting 165 service categories.
Supporting customers’ sustainability goals is increasingly critical to good partnerships.
Jabil is aligning itself to not only be a TRUSTED partner, but also to offer customers services and solutions that will support their own sustainability goals.
We are constantly improving manufacturing processes, ensuring smarter logistics and supply chain management while achieving consistent gains in energy conservation.
One Jabil customer had three suppliers sending glass from Austria, Netherlands and Portugal to France. The increased distance and weight was causing 2131 metric tons of CO2. Partnering with our facility in Tortosa and converting the material to plastic reduced the weight and distance travelled – and cut total emissions by 81%.
A consumer food product redesign and brand equity solution achieved:
• 20% weight reduction
• 5MM/Ibs resin saved
• High throughput advanced automation workcell model
• Lighter, Stronger, Faster
Many countries have set restrictions on the use, takeback and recycling of certain substances with environmental impacts. We go beyond the minimum requirements of many companies by requiring component-level substance transparency, full disclosure of all substances, and data reporting from our suppliers.
