MANAGEMENT APPROACH G4-DMA While Davey operates over 150 facilities throughout North America, many of these buildings are small, housing fewer than 10 employees, and often leased. Altogether, our facility energy footprint accounts for less than 5 percent of our overall energy footprint. e remaining energy use and affiliated emissions come from our fleet of vehicles and field equipment. erefore, managing our fleet and equipment—ensuring each item is properly used, as well as serviced regularly and maintained—offers the most actionable opportunity to decrease our emissions and energy use. e equipment department is ultimately responsible for energy and emissions associated with Davey's fleet. e department works with each business segment to ensure every territory is properly equipped to deliver unmatched excellence in client service. Each year, district and regional managers request equipment based on their territories' current fleet and projected level of business. e equipment department is led by the corporate fleet manager, who reports through the vice president of operations support services to the executive vice president and general manager, commercial landscapes services. Over the past 136 years, we have built our business on valuing the natural capital trees, plant life and animal habitats create for our homes and communities. As we begin to see evidence of a changing climate in our work and research, we have the capability and responsibility to take action on climate change and create positive impacts through our environmental services. In addition, we can work internally to reduce carbon emissions and fossil fuel use. WHEN IT COMES TO ENERGY AND EMISSIONS, IT'S ABOUT REDUCING OUR IDLE TIME. PAUL MILANO, CORPORATE FLEET MANAGER
