Choice of suppliers, products and services
The Centre for Sustainable Development encourages socially minded businesses when choosing service providers. During construction, the Centre hired Boulot vers..., a social insertion organization teaching woodworking skills to troubled youth. The students completed the cabinets in the building’s five kitchenettes. The Centre also has contracts with Récupéraction Marronniers (for waste collection) and Desjardins (for insurance).
Use purchasing power to support worthwhile causes providing added social value.
The Centre for Sustainable Development has two key objectives: help strengthen its member organizations and encourage the Quebec construction industry to embrace sustainable practices. The building belongs to a non-profit organization run by its members on a “one member, one vote” basis.
Help make Quebec a model society for sustainable development.
