How does JBT work with sustainability?

The transition into plant-based protein is one of the keys to reducing humanity’s environmental impact. On our commission to help the world make better use of its precious resources, we search for new ways to help our customers produce great food with a low carbon footprint. We believe it should be easy to convert or expand into plant-based, and we are eager to help you succeed.

Here are some other target areas in our sustainability work:

  • Environmental and social impact of products: We manage and mitigate the impact products have on the environment and communities with a strategy towards a more environmentally or socially beneficial product portfolio.
  • Our climate strategy defines JBT’s approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across operations while managing physical and transition risks related to climate change.
  • Talent attraction and development: We use policies and practices to attract and develop high-quality talent with the right skills to deliver on current and future business needs.
  • Diversity, equity and inclusion: We use policies and practices that create a welcoming environment for all employees, regardless of differences in race, color, gender, backgrounds, beliefs, abilities and experiences, to fulfil their potential.
