Hurricane Ian Response: We are responding to post-storm requests where we can do so safely. Please visit the American Red Cross to assist families impacted by Ian.
The Davey Institute leads our environmental programs by developing practices based on responsible, science-based actions, advanced technical research, and sustainable business practices.
We ensure Davey’s environmental responsibilities through compliance with internal policies, applicable laws and regulations, commitment to continuous improvement, and public disclosure of our environmental, social and governance guidelines, including:
- Responsible Pesticide Use: To determine the best way to solve the client’s problem with the lowest practical environmental impact, we have implemented a risk-based approach to balance the positive and negative environmental effects of the chemicals we use.
- Promotion of Integrated Pest Management: An ecosystem-based strategy focusing on long-term prevention of pests or their damage through a combination of techniques such as biological control, habitat manipulation, modification of cultural practices, and use of resistant varieties.
- Culture of Corporate Responsibility: We incorporate sustainability practices into our business operations and report on our progress through our annual Corporate Responsibility report. We have already seen great results in reducing fuel usage and GHG emissions by implementing GPS mapping and moving to a lighter duty fleet.
- Pollinator Protections: We identify and communicate to field operations the chemicals and processes that could be harmful to pollinators and the best practices to mitigate the risk. We also work collaboratively to research pollinator gardens and work with our clients on establishing pollinator foraging areas.
