2017 Award Winners
QUALITY OF LIFE
Our Go Ahead Awards program was launched in 2016 as a unique celebration of those who are making a positive impact in the vegetation management industry; the men and women who are helping safeguard the areas where people live, work and play.
speaks to the passion we have for enabling our customers to excel in the following areas:
Companies that have shown exemplary commitment to sustainable business practices that promote wildlife and pollinator habitat creation, emissions reduction, water conservation, and switching customer to low use rate products.
Companies that have managed to pass on cost efficiency and savings to their customers through innovative practices such as long-term programs designed to reduce mowing and herbicide applications over time.
Companies that had exemplary success in instituting a program that successfully eliminated a customer's pain point (ex: elimination of hard to control species; reduction in power blackouts).
/// QUALITY OF LIFE
Companies that have taken extra steps to ensure their daily work contributes to improving spaces where people live, work and play (ex: partnering with communities on restoration initiatives; providing employees with unique benefits; educating the general public).
Companies that go above and beyond to protect the safety of their employees and the general public by engaging in practices that minimize risk in the working environment (ex: injury prevention practices like PPE trading or offering to maintain access road for a customer even if outside of original maintenance contract).
/// COMMUNITY (2017 SPECIAL RECOGNITION)
2017 marked a difficult year for our industry and our communities with multiple natural disasters causing havoc on the places where we live, work, and play. This special award was created to recognize organizations that go above and beyond when our communities needed help the most.
