A Committed Supply Chain
At Cascades, gas emissions related to our transportation and the purchase of goods and services are significant, which is why reducing them is one of our priorities. To achieve this, we rely on the commitment of our suppliers and the optimization of our supply chain.
Cascades is a proud SmartWay partner, both for its Transport division and for all of its logistics operations.
Cascades recently measured greenhouse gas emissions from its supply chain; Scope 3 emissions. According to the conclusions obtained, our supply chain represents more than 50% of all of our emissions. Our suppliers thus play an essential role in our fight against climate change.
Logistics optimization also plays a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions through our supply chain, which is why Cascades has set up a specific department to optimize its transport, whether to reduce empty runs, use rail when possible or optimize loads. We also favor partnerships with SmartWay certified carriers, who share our values of respect for the environment.
