A Committed Supply Chain

At Cascades, greenhouse 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.

Our climate leadership



Cascades is a proud SmartWay partner, both for its Transport division and for all of its logistics operations.

Our Suppliers

Cascades recently measured the greenhouse gas emissions in 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

Logistics optimization also plays a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions throughout our supply chain. This is why Cascades set up a specific department to optimize its logistics, 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.
