Conserving Energy & Water

JBS USA and Pilgrim’s® recognize the need to preserve and protect the environment. Our operations, our team members, our neighbors and our communities depend on clean water, soil and air.


Our business requires a substantial amount of water, electrical energy and fuel to promote food safety, health and hygiene, animal care and team member safety. These valuable resources allow us to provide delicious and nutritious products for millions of consumers every day. We recognize that the efficient and sustainable use of natural resources such as water and the minimization of our energy footprint wherever possible are uncompromising priorities that not only benefit the efficiency of our operations, but contribute to a healthier planet. We actively lead and participate in efforts, both internal and external, that further our industry’s ability to minimize our impact on the environment, identify and implement more sustainable practices and contribute to a better future for coming generations.
