Carbon Emissions  

BrightView is a pioneer in the use of zero-emission, low-noise electric equipment. BrightView crews maintain landscapes at sites like the University of Pennsylvania and Independence National Historical Park using electric equipment. Conventional gas-powered equipment is maintained to manufacturers’ specifications to assure efficient operation and daily routes for our crews are planned to maximize efficiency and reduce emissions.
