Hey There


Aerialworks recognizes the importance of environmental stewardship in our operations and the potential for aerial technology to support sustainable green infrastructure. This program outlines our commitment to minimizing environmental impact, maximizing the benefits of green infrastructure assets, and promoting sustainable practices in our aerial data collection and analysis services.

Our Environment Protection Standards

Aerialworks Environmental Protection Program for Green Infrastructure Assets


Program Objectives

  1. Minimize Environmental Impact: Reduce the carbon footprint of our drone operations through efficient flight planning, utilizing electric or hybrid drones when feasible, and minimizing noise pollution.

  2. Maximize Green Infrastructure Benefits: Leverage aerial data collection and analysis to assess the health,functionality, and effectiveness of green infrastructure assets (e.g., green roofs, bioswales, urban forests). Provide actionable insights to optimize their performance and enhance their ecological contributions.

  3. Promote Sustainability: Educate clients and partners about the environmental benefits of green infrastructure,advocate for sustainable practices in infrastructure management, and participate in industry initiatives promoting environmental conservation.

Implementation Plan

  1. Drone Operations:

  • Flight Planning: Optimize flight paths to minimize energy consumption and noise pollution. Prioritize flying during off-peak hours to reduce disturbance to wildlife and local communities.

  • Drone Selection: Prioritize the use of electric or hybrid drones for data collection whenever feasible. For missions requiring longer flight times or heavier payloads, utilize fuel-efficient drones with low emissions.

  • Maintenance: Regularly maintain and inspect drones to ensure optimal performance and minimize the risk of accidents or fuel leaks.

  2.   Data Collection and Analysis:

  • Green Infrastructure Assessment: Develop specialized aerial data collection protocols and analysis techniques to assess the health and functionality of various green infrastructure assets. Analyze data to identify potential issues (e.g., vegetation stress, drainage problems) and recommend solutions for improvement.

  • Monitoring and Reporting: Offer regular monitoring services to track the performance of green infrastructure assets over time. Provide detailed reports to clients with actionable insights and recommendations for optimization.​

  3.    Sustainability Initiatives:

  • Education and Outreach: Develop educational materials (e.g., webinars, blog posts, case studies) to raise awareness about the environmental benefits of green infrastructure and the role of aerial technology in supporting sustainable practices.

  • Industry Collaboration: Participate in industry organizations and initiatives focused on environmental conservation and sustainable infrastructure. Collaborate with partners to develop best practices and standards for environmentally responsible drone operations.

  4.   Evaluation & Continuous Improvement

  • Regularly review and assess the effectiveness of the environmental protection program.

  • Monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) related to drone emissions, noise pollution, and the impact of green infrastructure assessments.

  • Seek feedback from clients and partners to identify areas for improvement.

  • Adapt the program as needed to incorporate new technologies, regulations, and industry best practices.


Aerialworks is committed to leading by example in environmental responsibility. By implementing this comprehensive program, we aim to minimize our environmental impact, maximize the benefits of green infrastructure assets, and contribute to a more sustainable future for all.
