IJʿ’s Approach To Sustainability

Our sustainability plan embodies considerations for our impact on people, the environment, and the economy. At IJʿ we understand that sustainability requires a holistic approach throughout everything we do. Because we are a company that believes in being a force for good, IJʿ will also lead sustainability efforts by doing so with purpose.

Prefabrication and sustainability are very interdependent, and you are most likely to achieve a sustainable building when the sustainability goals are designed into the product.

How We Demonstrate Sustainability Everyday

Zero waste operations

Our Woodland plant is a nearly ‘zero waste’ operating facility in responsibly diverting waste from landfills, with a diversion rate of nearly 90%.

Renewable energy-powered operations

Our recent solar farm expansion supplies 100% of electrical energy used at all our CA manufacturing plants.

Green Fleet

In a commitment to “green our fleet”, our Woodland plant uses an Orange EV pure electric terminal tractor in place of a traditional diesel-fueled yard truck. Over its lifespan, it reduces emissions equivalent up to 2,500 tons CO2.

Buying Local

Whenever possible, local suppliers are our preference in materials acquisition, ensuring the least amount of carbon impact in transportation of materials.

Concrete Recycling

All coarse or fine concrete aggregates remaining from batch processing are reclaimed and recycled, eliminating concrete waste.


Nearly all water used in our prefabrication batch processes is recycled and reused on site.

CARBONSHIELD™ is a new proprietary concrete mix developed by IJʿ.

CARBONSHIELD provides the same performance as traditional mixes, with up to 50% less embodied carbon. Additionally, CARBONSHIELD can be used throughout the building structure and not only in elements that tolerate slow strength gain.

By combining CARBONSHIELD with radiant floors, IJʿ delivers the best-in-class carbon reduction solution available.

community engagement - purpose

Through community philanthropic outreach, the IJʿ Foundation, our nonprofit 501(c)(3), provides a variety of support and resources annually through collaboration with many local organizations and charities.  We excitedly engage our employees in a “giving back” mindset and each year seek ways to extend outward either through volunteerism or donations throughout the communities we serve. 

Some notable highlights are our annual charitable contributions of holiday hams and turkeys to local charities, our annual bike drive for Collings Teen Center in West Sacramento, our annual crab feed fundraiser for the Yolo Crisis Nursery, and our growing partnerships with countless other charities.
