Emerge Knowledge Design Inc.

Emerge Knowledge Design Inc. is the environmental technology company that delivers Re-TRAC Connect™, the proven web-based software that material management professionals trust to efficiently collect, manage, and analyze recycling and solid waste data. 

The science is clear; a climate catastrophe is unfolding that will completely disrupt our economy, society, and environment unless we significantly reduce the amount of carbon pollution we generate as a society. Our heavy reliance on fossil fuels as an energy source is a monumental problem that will require all sectors, organizations, and individuals to be part of the solution.

As business owners, we embrace our responsibility to act. This is why we signed the pledge. It’s important for business owners to speak up because it sends an important signal about the urgency of the climate crisis to the rest of society generally, and policy-makers specifically.

We hope that BizforClimate can help change the perception that business owners don’t care about their community, the environment, or the future. I know a lot of successful entrepreneurs who are also parents and citizens and care deeply about the welfare of the planet and its people.

One action step we’ve taken as a company is to provide 100% subsidized bus passes for our employees.
