COMPANY CULTURE

JC Industries is committed to the community. As JC Industries growth began to accelerate it was imperative to give back and be aware of our impact on the environment. JCI is committed to our employees, and clients; we are equally dedicated to having a positive impact on the environment. It is JCI's mission to preserve our world and do our part to reduce the pollution placed into the environment. As a result, we put into place programs within our organization for reducing negative environmental impacts. Our very first steps were daunting. Breaking old habits can be a challenge, but that didn’t deter us from accomplishing our goal.

Through determination we have reduced paper copies and cd waste. This was done by taking advantage of technology and software programs like PDF and Drop Box. We have all but eliminated color copies and cd's. We now archive images and artworks on our cloud drive. The entire package that used to be burned on the cd's and mailed to clients is now digitally sent to our clients, and venders. We implemented the use of recycled paper as well as NOT destroying our cardboard shipping boxes; rather we send them to recycle plants for future use. Also, all waste disposals within the facility are sorted and recycled at the local recycling center.

In addition, the newly relocated JCI building was chosen with its employee's wellbeing in mind. The new JCI building is located adjacent (10 yards away) to the Los Angeles Metro station; this poses a great significance because we wanted to empower our employees. Many of our employees have abandoned the use of their cars and eliminated the frustrations of the daily commute on the freeway. Instead they choose to park and ride and use the Metro rail system for a worry free and environmentally friendly ride! This has proven to be beneficial for the employees because it is economically advantages, convenient, and reduces carbon monoxide from car engines.
