The Rhine/Neckar metropolitan region has selected JBL for an energy efficiency award as part of its project Sustainable Business Practices 2014. An audit of the JBL works in Neuhofen convinced them how much JBL has invested in environmental protection:
Less waste is being created due to optimized waste separation. The positive energy balance of the company has been achieved by JBL producing enough energy from its own solar plant to cover the majority of its electricity demands. An energy saving has been reached through an improved building insulation. Dr Ursula Schrott and Roland Böhme received the certificate on 18 January 2015.
