Caring for our Environment
For more than 100 years, J.S. West has maintained a union with the land and the people of the Central Valley. The stewardship of the land we farm resonates in our always fresh, locally produced poultry products, almonds, and a variety of feeds. We take our role as an innovative environmental business very seriously and know the goal is to strive for the most sustainable solutions.
Another way J.S. West gives back to the environment is the purchase and implementation of a solar power system on the roof of our corporate headquarters. We have produced about 172+ Kwh and saved about 240+ lbs of CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) production per day. Since the project began in January 2009, we have produced 67,573.73+ kWh and saved 49+ tons of CO2 production. The average U.S. home uses 920 Kwh each month. The average person generates 1250 lbs of CO2 each month from personal transportation, home energy use and from the energy used to produce all of the products and services we consume.
Here at J.S. West, we have implemented a paperless system to reduce the use of print materials.
