Wanting to do its part for the planet, Jakarto supports UNISFÉRA's Planetair initiative by purchasing carbon credits to offset emissions.
We're proud to have received Planetair's stamp of approval:
Carbon neutral certified company
This initiative is part of a collective effort to reduce our carbon footprint and provide clients with eco-conscious solutions developed in Quebec. We're extremely pleased to have made our operations carbon neutral—in fact, we're probably the first mobile mapping company to do so.
Félix Laroche, CEO Jakarto
A global vision
Jakarto aims to do its part for the environment in two ways.
Firstly, Jakarto offsets the GHGs emitted by its three capture units, which travel approximately 50,000 to 70,000 kmacross Quebec every year. These distancesare coveredto map roads and urban infrastructures, cataloguing buildings and vegetation along the way. Since 2017, Jakarto has been keen to calculate and compensate for these emissions.
Secondly, Jakarto's 3D HD mapping solutions arepowerful allies to Mother Nature. By producing a city's "digital twin," we minimize the need for onsite maintenance and inspection, thus reducing travel required by architects, urban planners, engineers, and geomatics specialists.Moreover, our system itemizes and analyzesvegetation to map green spaces and calculate CO2 absorption capacity.
