As a company that prides itself on designing and nurturing landscapes that inspire and enhance communities, developing and deploying environmentally sustainable strategies and solutions is fundamental to what BrightView (NYSE: BV) – the nation’s leading commercial landscaping company – does on Earth Day and every day.
“Our team members not only create and maintain the best landscapes on Earth, but they do so with sustainability top of mind,” said Andrew Masterman, BrightView President and Chief Executive Officer. “Investing in these measures to ensure future generations enjoy a cleaner and greener Earth is core to our beliefs.
