We're an environmental company. We hold ourselves accountable for making responsible decisions and finding ways to lessen our Impact on Earth. We put people and the planet first, in everything we do. Pioneers of green chemistries and leaders of eco-responsible business practices, we are transforming the mosquito control industry.
In 2009 we published our first Sustainability Report. It marked the beginning of a new era at Clarke, inspired by the belief that it is our moral obligation to do our part to protect the earth. Environmental accountability became the rule—not the exception—in every aspect of our business. Today, sustainabilty, innovation, and community are central to everything we do.
We recognize that every action we take, big or small, can directly impact the environment and significantly affect future generations. — J. Lyell Clarke III, President & CEO
We set ambitious goals that touch every aspect of our business. From converting our gas-powered fleet to hybrid vehicles and our Zero Waste initiative, we are leading by action and delivering real results.
