This Sustainable Development Policy applies to all Cain Lamarre offices in Québec.
We are committed to minimize our environmental impact through the adoption of sustainable practices and by favoring awareness and accountability within our firm.
We understand that we cannot accomplish a sustainable transition alone. We are committed to closely collaborate with our clients, partners, and local community to promote innovating and sustainable solutions.
We are committed to permanently integrate better sustainable development practices and to search for continuous improvement opportunities in order to reduce our environmental footprint and increase our positive impact in the community.
We are committed to report our sustainable development actions and progress with transparency and responsibility. We will regularly forward the results to our internal and external stakeholders.
The five following strategic directions will be our main focus for the implementation of our Sustainable Development Policy:
We will establish initiatives to reduce, reuse, and recycle the waste generated by our operations, by favoring responsible use of ressources and minimizing our waste production.
We will continue to search for ways to optimize the consumption of our material ressources such as paper, office supplies, and energy, by favoring efficient and sustainable practices.
We encourage the use of sustainable transportation such as carpooling, public transport, biking, and walking to reduce the carbon footprint of our personal and professional travels.
We will engage in projects and causes that improve the quality of live of our local communities. We will support social initiatives, environmental projects, and educational programs that contribute to building a more sustainable and supportive society.
We will create a working environment supportive of the health and well-being of our staff by promoting ergonomic workspaces, work-life balance, and skill development.
