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 wildfire detection technologies and forest monitoring solutions while at the same time minimizing our own environmental impact.
Sustainability to us 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—often informally referred to as profits, planet, and people.
Our first mission is to greatly reduce the reaction time for tackling forest fires. We also aim to enable our customers to monitor the vitality and growth of their forests and other ecosystems, helping to protect and restore our vital natural resources. We will continually review our own production processes, supply chains and operations to minimize the environmental impact of our products.
We will always optimize our products, processes, supply chains and operations from a green perspective. Our sensors and gateways operate entirely on solar power, removing the need for the potentially toxic lithium-ion batteries used in most IoT devices. We select our suppliers and review our operations using stringent green criteria to minimize our own environmental footprint.
Wildfires have a devastating effect on our planet's sustainable development goals (SDGs) as defined by the United Nations:
Wildfires cause 7.8 billion tons CO2 emissions (20% of global emissions).
Each year, more than 3 billion animals perish in wildfires.
Wildfires cause $140 billion of financial damages annually.
Wildfire haze contains toxic materials that can lead to respiratory illnesses and an array of health issues.
Based on our ambitious growth plans to apply our technologies around the world to prevent wildfires, we commit to achieving the following SDG-related goals by 2030:
CO2 emissions prevented (tons)
animals saved from wildfires
protected economic loss
By preventing 3.9m hectares from burning, we will protect the world’s largest carbon sink.
By preventing wildfires, we will protect the homes and habitats of 75% the planet's land-based biodiversity.
Minimizing forest fires prevents related damages to property, infrastructure and loss of business.
Preventing wildfire haze will protect people from a great deal of respiratory illnesses.
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.
