In 2021, FÉRIQUE Fund Management reached a major milestone in terms of carbon footprint, achieving carbon neutrality for all of its operations. We continue to move in the right direction.
We have retained the services of the firm LCL Environnement to carry out an up-to-date inventory of greenhouse gas emissions related to our operations. This inventory is drawn up according to the guiding principles of ISO-14064-1 and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, and makes it possible to measure the quantity of CO2 linked, for example, to air conditioning, energy, electricity, personal travel and business travel.
Purchase of carbon credits
With Planetair+ÉTS, which offers carbon credits from Gold Standard certified projects, we have acquired a portfolio of projects that allows us to offset 100% of our GHGs with Gold Standard credits. Our contribution also includes a second component, which consists of supporting ÉTS in the fight against climate change through research projects in technologies for reducing emissions and adapting to climate change, as well as in measuring and in modeling.
By contributing to the activities of Carbone Scol’ERE, an organization that offers a “turnkey” educational program in primary schools in Quebec, we have improved our compensation.
Carbone Scol’ERE’s educational activities in science and technology focus on climate change, GHGs and the consequences of our consumption choices. They also invite students to identify potential solutions and mobilize those around them.
