Environmental Services and Solutions
Day & Zimmermann seeks to offer an expanding array of services and products that provide long-term environmental benefits and empower customers to reduce their environmental footprint.
Power Industry Support
Nuclear power represents a potent form of green energy and Day & Zimmermann contributes to the maintenance of a majority of the 104 nuclear power plants that meet approximately 20% of electrical energy needs in the U.S.
We also help our customers in the power sector reduce their impact on the environment and comply with evolving regulatory requirements by delivering comprehensive engineering, construction and maintenance support for both fossil and nuclear power generation facilities. Our projects include retrofits as well as refurbishment and modification of facilities to reduce emissions and greenhouse gases.
LEED Design and Construction Services
We design and build Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified structures using strategies aimed at improving energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. We also serve as a LEED registering agent, registering and validating projects for certification.
Environmental Workforce Solutions
Day & Zimmermann, through its Yoh division, helps companies achieve their environmental objectives by providing a wide variety of personnel to staff environmental projects and departments. Positions we source and place include environmental engineers, geologists, biologists, air quality specialists, hydrologists and various field technicians.
Day & Zimmermann is also reviewing the way we deliver our services and manufacture our products, with an eye toward improved environmental performance. Our American Ordnance division uses a UL-Certified ISO 14001 Environmental Management System to optimize environmental performance at all plants. Additional green efforts in the Munitions division include expanded digital x-ray capabilities to reduce dependency on film and developing chemicals, and converting the vehicle fleet to smaller, more energy efficient models (including electric).
