Happy Earth Day from JDL!

As we celebrate Earth Day, JDL reflects on both past achievements and future aspirations in our journey towards a greener, more sustainable world. We take pride in our ongoing efforts not only within the construction realm but also in our daily lives, striving to minimize our carbon footprint and contribute positively to the environment.

In construction, we take pride in our ongoing work on LEED certified projects. LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a globally recognized certification program by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). It sets standards for sustainable practices across all stages of a building’s lifecycle, from design and construction to operation and maintenance. Our dedication to LEED principles is evident in our focus on site selection, water and energy efficiency, materials usage, indoor environmental quality, and innovative design strategies. By embracing these practices, we aim to reduce our carbon footprint and showcase the positive impact of sustainable construction.

Beyond our construction endeavors, JDL actively supports charitable initiatives such as Thompson Island Outward Bound. Our recent volunteer efforts on the island included trail clearing, beach cleanup, and assisting with various tasks aimed at fostering a safe and welcoming environment for the island’s youth. These seemingly small actions contribute to a larger mission of environmental stewardship, reminding us that everyone plays a crucial role in preserving and enhancing our planet. Organizations like Thompson Island Outward Bound rely on collective efforts to maintain their environments, and we are proud to lend our support to such worthy causes.

As we commemorate Earth Day, JDL reaffirms its commitment to sustainability, both in our professional endeavors and community engagement. Together, we can continue to make strides towards a greener future, leaving a positive legacy for generations to come.
