Our Approach

Sustainability Governance

102-18, 102-16

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.

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.

Tree Photos Have Power

Can’t get outside? Simply looking at a photo of trees for five minutes reduces stress and lowers blood pressure.
