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.

Every year, JM Family documents and publishes its efforts toward becoming an environmentally sustainable organization. Learn about our progress in 2016 in the company’s Impact Report, or look back at our sustainability journey by reading the archived reports below.
