In order to ensure that future generations enjoy a cleaner tomorrow, Desjardins Insurance has significantly reduced its eco-footprint by:
- Relying on technology to reduce business travel (web conferences, etc.)

Planting trees with Tree Canada
Tree Canada is a charity dedicated to planting and nurturing trees. Since 1992, they’ve planted more than 82 million trees and helped restore places hit by natural disasters.
We partnered with Tree Canada to plant a tree for every customer who signs up for a paper-free account between June 22 and July 31, 2020.
When you switch to Paper-Free or create a Paper-Free Online Services account, it benefits you and the environment.
