Environmental dimension

The environmental aspect of sustainable development refers to all the steps taken by an organization to continuously improve its environmental practices and those of all its employees.

Reducing the negative impact on the environment

From an environmental point of view, the Fonds’ Annual and Sustainability Reports present the efforts made to improve its environmental performance in a continuous improvement perspective. Examples include:

LEED EB certification

The Fonds obtained Gold Level LEED EB (existing buildings) certification as well as the Level 4 certification of the BOMA BESt program, its highest certification level, for its head office.

Firmly committed employees!

Through training, capsules and vignettes and awareness-raising activities, the Fonds is taking up the challenge of continuously and more effectively adhering to the values of SD and SRI.

At the Fonds, the employees are well aware of SD and SRI actions that are implemented. Here are some examples:

  • the Green Committee: this committee is responsible for developing and implementing environmental activities and projects;
  • the Sustainable Transportation Committee: this committee takes actions and communicates them to reduce solo driving and promote public and active transportation;
  • eco-responsible event management: the meetings and various activities organized by the Fonds are driven by the principles of respect for the environment and solidarity. For instance, the Fonds’ annual general meeting has been carbon-neutral for several years.
