2015 Leaders sustainable transportation


Le 1000 De La Gauchetière, was awarded the prize in 2015 Leaders sustainable transportation for all measures to promote sustainable transport set up by its properties in Montreal.

"This award recognizes our commitment to reducing the environmental footprint of our activities," stated Christine Babkine, Director, Corporate Social Responsibility, on behalf of all the Montreal properties. "We are very proud of the measures we are implementing to reduce the use of resources and increase our employees' well-being."

Among the initiatives that have helped us stand out are the access to car-sharing (Communauto and car2go) and bike-sharing (Bixi) services, installation of more than 4 charging stations for electric vehicles, the presence of bicycle stands, improvement of the videoconferencing system – both in meeting rooms and directly at some employees' work stations – and, the fact that all our Quebec properties are situated within 500 metres of public transit.
