Sustainable Development Goals
JMI manages sustainability in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were launched in 2015 by the United Nations 2030 Agenda to make the planet more sustainable for people, and the SDGs have 17 goals and 169 targets.
Although JMI is not yet formally committed to the SDGs, the company uses the SDGs as an important benchmark for its sustainability efforts. The company understands that its strategic themes are closely related to some of the SDG themes, as shown below:
Global warming is one of the greatest challenges in human history and JMI will be committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and ensuring product delivery with the lowest possible environmental impact.
The current JMI Meatprocessing Plant is set to reduce its carbon footprint and deliver products with a lower environmental impact by combining initiatives and practices to measure and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from manufacturing processes, energy consumption and transport logistics.
Its upcoming Biosecurity Integrated Meat Processing Plant project will introduce climate-smart technologies, and in this project JMI is aiming to make a zero-emissions commitment possible.
