Les super-pouvoirs du Phenix ?

  • 💪 L’impact : tel un messager entre les entreprises, les associations caritatives et les consommateurs, Phenix a déjà sauvé 140 millions de repas grâce à ses solutions positives et solidaires.

  • 💛 Un cœur gros comme ça : en donnant aux plus démuni·e·s les invendus des magasins, Phenix lutte concrètement contre le gaspillage ET la précarité.

  • 🐝 La Tech For Good : en mettant ses outils tech au service du bien commun, Phenix prouve qu’il est possible d’être une entreprise à la pointe de la technologie tout en améliorant le monde. Chez Phenix, ils sont très fiers d’être labellisés B-Corp et ESUS (Entreprise Solidaire d’Utilité Sociale). Cocorico !
