DataSource Mobility is concerned about the impact that we all have on the environment and we feel it is our obligation and privilege to be stewards for the world we live in. We use this statement as a set of guiding principles for our day to day and strategic decision making process.
We strictly adhere to environmentally friendly practices to ensure we leave a small carbon footprint.
We reduce, reuse and recycle in all areas of our business and endeavor to make the “right choice” each and every time.
It all starts with our business model—which is incredibly lean and efficient. For example, the majority of our team is home office based and commutes no further than the kitchen to the office. This strategy eliminates travel time to an office and decreases CO2 emissions. Our sales team is set up by regions to enable travel by car to be an efficient means of transportation. Additionally, our primary mode of meeting with customers is by teleconference or online session. We are happy to fly or drive to meet with you as needed, but the point is that we operate as streamlined as possible.
These and other efficiencies that we gain enable us to reduce our carbon footprint and at the same time lower our cost basis. This in turn means a lower price to our customer and it means that our manufacturer partners can sell more of their product. This philosophy creates a win for all stakeholders: the customer, the manufacturer, DataSource and the environment. We believe that “green thinking” needs to be grounded in the notion that, if done properly, what is best for the environment is ultimately what’s best for all involved.
As we strive to make a conscious effort to be environmentally friendly, we also work to develop partnerships with companies who have the same ideals. We evaluate partners on four basic criteria, we call it the 4 Principles of Partnership:
If you really think about it, all of these criteria trend back to a guiding philosophy for offering solutions to our customers: total cost of ownership. We believe that by offering the best solution we reduce the overall cost for our customer and at the same time we can create a better solution for the environment as well.
