Corporate Responsibility

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

The EnviroScience Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC) is an employee-led initiative for giving back to our community with our time, labor, expertise, and of course, financially by helping to fund projects and activities of particular interest to our members and employees. We are proud members of the United Nations Global Compact and continue to grow our business following the Ten Principles.

The CRC is a voluntary group of staff who participate in and support our various causes and events. The EnviroScience Board of Directors recognizes the importance of community involvement and provides 98% of the seed money we use. Because of this support, nearly 40% of our staff participate in CRC events.

EnviroScience’s Corporate Responsibility Committee was awarded the 2014 Medical Mutual SHARE Award for Community Service. EnviroScience was one of thirteen companies in Northeast Ohio recognized for its outstanding initiatives to give back to its community.

Few environmental firms in the country retain EnviroScience’s degree of scientific know-how, talent, and capability under one roof. The diverse backgrounds of our biologists, environmental engineers, scientists, and divers enable us to provide comprehensive in-house services and an integrated approach to solving environmental challenges—saving clients time, reducing costs, and ensuring high-quality results.

Our client guarantee is to provide “Excellence in Any Environment,” meaning no matter what we do, we will deliver on our Core Values of respect, client advocacy, quality work, accountability, teamwork, and safety. EnviroScience was created with the concept that we could solve complex problems by empowering great people. This concept still holds true today as our scientists explore the latest environmental legislation and regulations and incorporate the most up-to-date technology to gather and report data.

EnviroScience expertise includes but is not limited to aquatic surveys (including macroinvertebrate surveys and biological assessments); ecological restoration; ecological services (including impact assessments, invasive species control, and water quality monitoring);  emergency response; engineering and compliance services; endangered mussel surveys; laboratory and analysis; stormwater management; threatened and endangered species; and wetlands and streams (including delineation and mitigation). Further, EnviroScience is one of the few biological firms in the country that is a general member of the Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI) and offers full-service commercial diving services.
