Jayco, Inc. has announced that it has launched a long-term Sustainability Initiative designed to insure minimal negative impact by its products and processes on human health and the environment. As part of the initiative, the company has set a number of ambitious strategic goals to be met over the next five years.
“At Jayco, sustainability means meeting our current manufacturing and resource needs without compromising future generations’ ability to meet theirs,” says Wilbur Bontrager, Jayco’s chairman of the board and CEO. “We build products that allow our customers to enjoy the outdoors and the environment. Therefore it makes sense that we should strive to be a good corporate citizen and a good steward of the environment.
“Our first goal is the most robust of all – that is our pledge to be landfill free by the year 2015,” says Bontrager. “This means that in four years, all waste that is currently generated in the manufacturing process or office workspaces will either be eliminated or recycled and no longer sent to the landfill.”
