Become more eco-friendly, one transaction at a time

Changing your habits can make a difference

How can Valérie be eco-friendly and keep a copy of her statements and bills?

She views her statements and bills online

Instead of printing her account statements and bills every month to keep them in her filing cabinet for future reference, she now views her account statements online (Desjardins, Visa, investments) and saves PDFs of them on her computer.

She also registered for epost, Canada Post's electronic mailbox, and can receive and pay all her bills on AccèsD (over 150 eligible billers, including Hydro-Québec) and archive them online for 7 years.

Valérie uses less paper and saves some money

By using epost, she will save $24 this year by not having to pay the $2 monthly fee charged by her phone service provider for mailing out bills.

Valérie helps save the planet

By receiving only one of her paper bills online on AccèsD per month, she prevents the production of 121 grams of CO2 per year1.

Together, Desjardins's 6 million members can make all the difference

If every Desjardins member followed Valérie's example, together, we could prevent the production of 726 tons of CO21.

Now, Valérie only uses paper
to wrap gifts.

How can Erica be eco-friendly and pay cash without going to the ATM?

She makes money transfers

Instead of driving back and forth to the ATM many times a week, Erica now makes money transfers to pay her babysitter instantly on the nights she watches the children, 3 to 4 times a week. No more needless trips to the ATM.

Erica doesn't use her car as much and saves time and money

By not making unnecessary trips to the ATM, Erica saves $116 a year in gas, but more importantly, she gains valuable time when it really counts.

Erica helps save the planet

By making money transfers, she prevents the production of 216 kg of CO2 per year1.

Together, Desjardins's 6 million members can make all the difference

If every Desjardins member followed Erica's example and made one less round trip to the ATM by car per week, together, we could prevent the production of 1,297,920 tons of CO2 per year1.

Now, Erica makes round trips to the ice cream parlour,
bringing joy to the whole family.

How can Jean be eco-friendly and make instalment payments more easily?

He makes the most of AccèsD Affaires

Instead of going through stacks of paper to make payments to various levels of government (instalment payments, source deductions, contributions, taxes, etc.), Jean uses AccèsD Affaires for all his needs.

He likes the Government remittances feature, which he uses to make all his payments and refund requests to the federal and provincial governments.

Jean also gets a comprehensive bank confirmation on AccèsD Affaires on his business's fiscal year-end date. He can even delegate this type of operation to his accountant to make his job easier.

Jean saves time for himself and his business

Jean made managing his cash flow easier for himself and his accountant, while eliminating the paper used when making instalment payments by cheque.

He also made his accountant's life easier by saving her a trip to the caisse to get a bank confirmation at the end of the fiscal year.

Jean helps save the planet

By making one payment per month online instead of by cheque, he prevents the production of 121 g of CO2 per year1.

Together, AccèsD Affaires's 250,000 users can make all the difference

If every AccèsD Affaires user followed Jean's example, together, we could prevent the production of 30.2 tons of CO2 per year or the consumption of 21 tons of paper per year1.

Now, Jean can have a drink with his team
on Thursday nights to celebrate their achievements.

How can Morgan be eco-friendly and make day-to-day transactions online?

He familiarizes himself with AccèsD

Morgan, a retired grandfather, discovered how great it is to read the papers on his new tablet. Following his grandson's advice, Morgan registered for Desjardins's AccèsD service to manage his personal finances online.

He now uses his tablet to access his accounts and is discovering, at his own pace, how AccèsD helps him make day-to-day transactions online, in a secure environment.

Morgan can view his accounts at a glance

Morgan checks all his account balances on AccèsD (Desjardins, Visa, investments and insurance). He can make money transfers and his retirement income is deposited in his chequing account every month. His next challenge? Paying his bills online.

Morgan helps save the planet

By opting for direct deposit and viewing his bills and account statements on AccèsD, Morgan prevents the production of 465 g of CO2 per year1.

Together, Desjardins's 6 million members can make all the difference

If every Desjardins member followed Morgan's example, together, we could prevent the production of 2,790 tons of CO2 per year1.

Grandson is proud of grandpa Morgan
who transferred $100 to him for his 18th birthday.

How can Daniel be eco-friendly and keep his money safe from fraudsters?

He learns about online security

Instead of only going online to read the news and play games, he now uses AccèsD in a secure manner to manage his personal finances without worrying about the security of his transactions or his identity being compromised.

He even switched to online account statements! He no longer receives paper statements by mail and doesn't have to drive to the caisse to pay his bills.

Daniel spends less on gas and enjoys the simplicity of AccèsD

He now does his day-to-day banking on AccèsD, where he can easily:

  • get an overview of his accounts
  • receive and pays bills
  • view his account and investment statements

He also discovered the My budget tool and the Select a plan feature, which allowed him to choose the right plan based on his transaction history.

Daniel helps save the planet

By registering for AccèsD, Daniel will make one less round trip to the ATM per month and, by switching to online account statements, he will prevent the production of 12.95 kg of CO2 per year1.

Together, Desjardins's 6 million members can make all the difference

If every Desjardins member followed Daniel's example, together, we could prevent the production of 77,600 tons of CO2 per year1.

Now, Daniel spends more time
protecting his lawn from intruders.
