Novanta’s offices and manufacturing facility on Middlesex Turnpike back onto a picturesque wetland that drains into the Beaver Brook watershed. Daniel Martin, Manager of Environmental Health & Safety, has been planning an environmental protection initiative for the area since March 2020.

Just a few of the scores of Novanta employees scavenging for trash around their headquarters on Middlesex Turnpike.

An environmental clean-up is consistent with Novanta’s corporate commitment to ESG (environmental, social, and governance) protocols. The company’s website states, “For Novanta, technology and sustainability are not a contradiction, but two sides of the same coin. To make our world more sustainable, we need constantly improving technological solutions. As a leading supplier of key technology solutions for medical and advanced industrial equipment, we make contributions to sustainability on a global scale.”

Martin got to work early on Earth Day 2022 to find a pair of Great Blue Herons at the edge of the wetland. “It’s kind of a sign that we’re doing the right thing today,” he said as the first shift of Novanta employees fanned out to collect bags of trash, automobile tires, office furniture, and assorted detritus from the company’s campus and the edge of the wetland.

Wearing waders and substantial rubber gloves, carrying a bucket to retrieve what he found, Martin explored the edge of the wetland.
