Ambitious goals. Powerful results.

At Jayco, we're proud to have one of the RV industry's top sustainability initiatives. We know as an industry leader, we have to continually set the bar for ourselves and our practices. We also know that a goal is nothing unless we take a step back to see if it's been accomplished. Click the icons below to see what kind of progress we're making. It's one of the many ways in which we're tracking progress — the very key to accountability.

LANDFILL FREE BY 2015

At Jayco, we've set an ambitious goal to be landfill free by 2015. By relocating recycling bins, aggressively educating employees and working with suppliers to reduce packaging, we're doing our part to become landfill free.

PROGRESS REPORT

With 11 production lines and numerous side departments, housed in more than 40 buildings, Jayco has seen significant strides in its recycling efforts. In 2012, Jayco reduced the amount of waste produced per unit by 21 pounds. We currently are 77% complete with our landfill-free goal. 

REDUCE FRESHWATER USE

Through ongoing efforts, Jayco plans to drastically reduce freshwater use in its facilities. In 2013, Jayco plans to implement a rainwater capture plan for its Middlebury complex. By capturing rain water runoff, Jayco will be able to provide the water needs for three major production facilities, including production testing.

Progress Report

Currently, Jayco uses recycled water in all of its quality control testing, including the water-intensive rain booth. Thanks to efforts like these, we conserved enough water to meet the daily fresh water needs of 104,360 Americans in 2012.

USE MORE SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

By re-using materials, improving packaging and working with suppliers to use more sustainable components, we've made an ongoing commitment to create partnerships that'll protect our planet.

Progress Report

In 2012, Jayco continued to work with suppliers to reduce packaging and use returnable carts for products received

CONSUME LESS ENERGY

Jayco is committed to consuming 40 percent less energy by 2014 through facility upgrades and production process improvements.

Progress Report

As of December 2012, Jayco COMPLETED our goal of 40 percent energy reduction - a full year ahead of schedule! By completing this goal, Jayco reduced energy usage by 721,713 kilowatt hours in 2012 and a total of 12,450,269 kilowatt hours since the launch of the EcoAdvantage initiatve.

PROMOTE GREEN EFFORTS

By promoting our EcoAdvantage efforts, we hope to pave the way as a sustainability leader in the RV industry. Through dialogue, education and goals, we hope RV owners, suppliers and even competitors begin to recognize the importance these practices can have on the environment.

Progress Report

Jayco is partnering with the Middlebury Community School Corporation to help the school start and maintain a recycling program in the fall of 2013. Through this educational program and the EcoAdvantage website, Jayco hopes to continue this important conversation.

STREAMLINE PROCESSES

We've begun standardizing more processes to reduce energy use, increase efficiency and limit production waste. These initiatives will result in better products that are more energy-efficient and provide greater value to our customers.

Progress Report

Process teams have been established in all production facilities to initiate action plans working to standardize production processes, reduce waste and improve efficiency.

REDUCE PRODUCT WEIGHT

Jayco has committed itself to building lighter weight products for better fuel economy, so that our owners tread even more lightly on the planet during their adventures.

Progress Report

In the last few years, we have developed components and processes that have allowed us to reduce product weight on some product lines by as much as 30 percent, saving you money and easing your towing burden.
