Environmental & Mitigation Banking

As a company headquartered in the heart of south Louisiana for the last 140 years, JMB understands the importance of preserving one of our country’s greatest natural resources:  wetlands. In 2010, JMB formalized our commitment to conservation by establishing the Environmental Business Unit which specializes in the creation, enhancement, and preservation of wetlands via Wetland Mitigation Banking. These banks are used to replace unavoidable environmental impacts caused by necessary expansion and growth of industry. In recent years, JMB’s environmental group has realized exciting growth with the restoration of 2,552 acres of mitigation and the planting of over 1 million trees.
