Davis-Standard launches global sustainability initiative
Equipment supplier Davis-Standard is pleased to announce the formation of a global sustainability initiative that prioritizes resource conservation and supports circular economy initiatives, social responsibility, and business collaboration.
As a company, Davis-Standard is accelerating efforts to cultivate best practices and machinery innovation that aligns with United Nations (UN) sustainable development goals.
“We have a collective responsibility to provide technology that enables forward-thinking solutions to complex challenges such as food security, reliable energy sources, and strategic infrastructure,” said Giovanni Spitale, CEO of Davis-Standard. “We have prioritized sustainability efforts along with safety, quality, and productivity to address the needs of our customers while playing an active role ourselves. As a result, we have already made significant advances in our machinery development regarding reduced waste, energy efficiency, and increased recyclability. We look forward to doing more as we work towards a sustainable future.“
Davis-Standard has committed to the following objectives by the year 2025:
– Direct R+D funding, targeting five percent of sales revenue, towards a sustainable equipment development. Efforts will focus on further expanding customer use of recycled content, reducing material waste, and efficient use of energy and process structures to support the circular economy.
– Increasing the procurement of carbon pollution-free electricity to 100 percent of Davis-Standard’s total energy usage
– Host “Davis-Standard Community Days” to support every community in which Davis-Standard is located. Each facility will identify and complete two environmentally-conscious activities per year
– Achieve ISO 14001 certification at all of their global facilities
