Laura Corrales

Canada-headquartered freight forwarder Delmar International has named Laura Corrales as the organisation’s first sustainability officer.

The new role’s mandate is to develop, implement and promote sustainability programmes for operations in North America.  

“Delmar continues to make strides in streamlining and eliminating redundancies and waste across our offices. But we also acknowledge that we can do better. It’s not just a matter of corporate responsibility; it’s a matter of preserving the planet for generations to come. The hiring of a Sustainability Officer is the first of many steps towards a more sustainable future,” said Robert Cutler, Delmar chief executive.  

Corrales was most recently an account executive and sustainability consultant with UPS where she delivered a sustainability action plan for UPS sustainability corporate office.

“The plan covered how to assess, report on and manage climate risk and opportunities,” Delmar said.

Based in the Montreal, Canada head office, she will report directly to the chief executive.
