Environmental Sustainability

Boart Longyear operates and has employees in over 40 countries. We are dedicated to promoting the well-being and development of our diverse employees and communities in which we are present. We believe our support of those communities can best be accomplished through a variety of means, including training and hiring locals, financial contributions, in-kind drilling services, coordination of volunteer services by our employees, and limiting the environmental impact of our operations.


One of Boart Longyear’s core values is “Mutual Trust and Respect.” We recognize that our people are our most important asset and understand that the best ideas develop as a result of collaborative efforts between individuals with diverse backgrounds, opinions, and perspectives. In support of this core value, we need to recruit, develop, and retain a talented, diverse, and motivated workforce that both shares our values and is representative of the many communities in which we work around the world.


Boart Longyear’s charitable giving philosophy is to align company support with our employees’ and regional operations’ charitable interests by gathering feedback directly from them and targeting projects and charitable programs in which they actively participate. Use our Charitable Giving Donation Application to request a donation.
