Davey prioritizes responsible and ethical behavior in our daily operations, demonstrating leadership through our actions.
Our Corporate Policies guide expected behavior and demonstrate our commitment to high ethical standards. This includes company governance, daily operations and environmental responsibility, and can be found on our website.
- Our Code of Ethics and Whistleblower Conduct Reporting Policies outline our standards for business affairs and disclosure process for misconduct, ensuring business matters are conducted ethically and in compliance with all federal, state and local laws. Our Code of Ethics for Financial Matters ensures compliance with legal requirements, specifically the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and related rules and regulations.
- Our Equal Employment Opportunity and Harassment Policies foster a safe and healthy work environment.
- Our Environmental Policy supports responsible environmental management throughout our operations. Learn more in the environmental sections of this report.
The Davey board of directors is ultimately responsible for oversight of our business strategy. The board has three committees—audit, compensation and governance. Read more about the Board Committee Charters here.
In 2007, we created our CR team to oversee our environmental sustainability commitments. This team meets regularly and includes leaders from operations, corporate purchasing, facilities, human resources, environmental management, financial accounting, communications and information systems. These leaders are responsible for management of our material topics. The CR team reports to the executive vice president of the Davey Institute and employee development, who in turn reports to the President and CEO. The President and CEO is a member of the board of directors.
