At Dryad, sustainability is a key principle guiding our corporate goals and commitments. We want to help protect and restore our vital ecosystems with our suite of forest monitoring solutions while at the same time minimizing our own environmental impact.
Sustainability means meeting today’s needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. The concept of sustainability is composed of three pillars: economic, environmental, and social—also known informally as profits, planet, and people.
Our mission is to reduce reaction time for forest fires, to monitor the vitality and growth of the forest and other ecosystems, helping to protect and restore our vital natural resources. We will continue to review our own production process, supply chain and operations to minimize the environmental impact of our products.
We will optimize our products, processes, supply chain and operations from a green perspective. Our sensors and gateways operate entirely on solar power, removing the need for the lithium-ion batteries used in most IoT devices. We select our suppliers and review our operations using green criteria to minimize our own environmental footprint.
Wildfires have a devastating effect on sustainable development goals (SDG) as defined by the United Nations:
Wildfires cause 7.8bn tons CO2 emissions (20% of global emissions).
Each year, more than 3bn animals perish in wildfires.
Wildfires cause $140bn financial damages annually.
Wildfire haze contains toxic material causing respiratory illness.
Based on our business plan and by applying our technology to prevent wildfires, we are committed to achieve the following SDG-related goals by 2030:
CO2 emissions prevented (tons)
By preventing 1m hectare from burning, we will protects the world’s largest carbon sink.
animals saved from wildfires
By preventing wildfires, we will protect the home of 75% of biodiversity on land.
protected economic loss
Reducing forest fires prevents related damages to property and loss of business.
Preventing wildfire haze will protect people from related respiratory illnesses cases.
We are committed to review our entire process from designing the products over delivery and eventual recycling to with the goals to optimize all aspects for minimizing our environmental impact.
