Sustainable Development

Ever since the Sustainable Development Act, came into effect, Investissement Québec - CRIQ has supported the government's vision by gearing its mission toward sustainable development. After adopting a sustainable development policy in 2007, it set clear objectives and created its first action plan for 2008–2015.

In March 2016, Investissement Québec - CRIQ continued its momentum toward sustainable development with a second action plan (only available in French) focused on responsible management practices and the promotion of innovation as a tool to develop a green and prosperous economy.

Through its action plan, Investissement Québec - CRIQ commits to adopting environmentally responsible practices in areas such as surplus inventory management, corporate travel, and procurement practices. It has also integrated the principles of sustainable development into its decision making process. In addition, Investissement Québec - CRIQ works to help businesses grow by promoting the benefits of sustainable development and providing access to innovative solutions that reduce the environmental impact of business activities. Investissement Québec - CRIQ is also dedicated to international cooperation in matters such as furthering technological development and standardization, developing certification programs, and creating a directory that promotes eco-friendly companies and products to help businesses and consumers alike make responsible consumption choices..
