Environmental Sustainability in Action

Decades before the phrase "corporate social responsibility" was coined, our visionary founder Jim Moran instilled a philosophy of giving back as a cornerstone of JM Family. He understood the important balance of aligning business goals with meeting the needs of the community. A natural progression of that philosophy includes accountability for our impact on the environment. Working toward becoming a more sustainable organization allows us to help create a better environment for associates, customers, partners and the community. Plus, it makes good business sense.
