WiseTech recognizes the importance of minimizing the environmental impact of our operations, as well as the opportunity for our technology and products to help our customers minimize the environmental impacts of their operations.
We are committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner.
We work to understand and manage any existing or emerging risks to the environment that our business activities may pose. We are subject to federal, state, and local regulations and laws globally and we have procedures in place to ensure that we are compliant to all applicable environmental regulations in the jurisdictions in which we operate.
We aim to minimize our resource usage and invest in energy efficient and environmentally sustainable practices.
We are committed to making a positive change by encouraging environmental sustainability practices within our operations and through our software. Increased productivity through our software can have environmental benefits including reduction in futile trips, optimized load configuration and the elimination of delays in intermodal transportation. Efficiency improvements also allow automation and the removal of numerous manual tasks.
As a software solutions provider, WiseTech is not directly involved in the manufacture or physical transportation of goods. While our global environmental footprint is relatively small across our operations, we are committed to reducing our environmental impacts where they exist.
We continue to explore best approaches to reduce our environmental footprint and mitigate our impacts, and improve our data collection, tracking, and reduction initiatives.
We report our environmental performance in our Annual Report, which can be found on our website.

Energy and emissions
We recognize that climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time and are committed to taking action to reduce, and eventually eliminate, emissions from our operations. We have set out a pathway to achieve our net zero global operations ambition, which we will be working to achieve over the coming years.
Measure and track our emissions → Offset 100% of carbon emissions from global operations1 → Improve our energy efficiency → Use 100% low or no emissions electricity → Net zero global operations1
1 Scope 1 and 2 emissions.
We measure and report our Scope 1 and 2 emissions annually in line with the global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standards. See our latest greenhouse gas inventory, read our Annual Report.
We are committed to reducing our energy consumption across our facilities and to be as energy efficient as possible.
In addition to steps taken to reduce our own environmental footprint, we invest in research and development design to deliver efficiencies that reduce the environmental footprint of our customers. This includes the ability for our customers to utilize our cloud based, centralized data centers, removing inefficient self-hosted energy intensive environments, and CargoWise software updates that streamline customer logistic routes.
We recognize the importance of minimizing the waste we generate. The main sources of waste for WiseTech include electronic equipment used by our employees in offices, office waste and packaging.
As a software business in the IT sector, our waste footprint is relatively low compared to other industries as we do not produce any goods or extract raw materials. Therefore, any potential negative impacts of our waste activities are not considered to be significant as they predominantly occur downstream in the value chain.
WiseTech works with partners to recover and recycle our e-waste such as desktops, laptops, servers, headsets, keyboards, mouses, docking stations and monitors. Equipment is tested and inspected to assess the equipment’s working condition. If approved, assets with commercial value are resold via local, global, and retail channels. Any devices that are determined to have no commercial value are processed through industrial shredders, ready to be recycled.
