biodiversity analysis

A BIODIVERSITY ANALYSIS TO EMPOWER YOUR SYSTEM

More than ever, utilities and associated organizations are being called upon by stakeholders and the public alike to explain their efforts in promoting pollinator and vegetation health throughout their territories. Historically, this has been difficult to quantify, making it hard for utilities to justify IVM efforts and communicate importance. What’s needed today more than ever is a complete biodiversity analysis that empowers utilities and related organizations to share and showcase this critical information.

That’s why ĵֱ Services launched the ܻ徱™ biodiversity assessment — to evaluate ROW corridor health and biodiversity over time and provide quantifiable data that vegetation management leaders can act upon and communicate with the world.

WHAT THE BIOaudit BIODIVERSITY ASSESSMENT COVERS

Our ܻ徱™ biodiversity analysis provides system-based ecological metrics for comprehensive, data-driven planning in managing right-of-way (ROW) vegetation. Our ROW Science Advisors assess multiple aspects of biodiversity in your corridors and green spaces — vertebrates, invertebrates, vegetation, soil, water, and more — to help quantify your integrated vegetation management (IVM) efforts, improve overall planning, and communicate impact with the public.

SEE BIOaudit IN ACTION

ĵֱ Services recently partnered with National Grid, a major electric and natural gas utility serving more than 20 million people throughout New England and New York. With an extensive commitment to environmental stewardship that reaches back more than 70 years, National Grid enlisted the RSI team at ĵֱ Services to perform a ܻ徱™ biodiversity analysis. Together they explored the impact of current integrated vegetation management (IVM) efforts and increased awareness of IVM in the greater community. .

Our organization felt confident in the return on that investment in the form of reduced injuries, less downtime and fewer claims. We also know that our employees saw and felt the benefit, and we received positive feedback after the initiative was complete.
