Reducing our Environmental Footprint
Descartes has a deep sense of environmental responsibility. We believe that we are helping to make the world a better place through logistics. Our solutions help to reduce paper use, save on miles driven - reducing carbon emissions, and maximize cargo utilization - resulting in fewer trips needed for delivery.In addition to this all of our offices have recycling programs and we are always striving to reduce waste and save energy.
Descartes is dedicated to being a good corporate citizen in all of the communities we work and live in. We strive, and encourage our employees to do the same, to contribute positively to our communities – locally and globally- through various forms of giving and volunteerism.
