Achieving carbon neutrality

In 2021, FÉRIQUE Fund Management reached a milestone in terms of its carbon footprint, achieving carbon neutrality for all its operations. This major achievement has inspired and motivated the entire organization to do even more. In the fall of 2021, FÉRIQUE Fund Management received carbon neutral certification from LCL Environnement, after it inventoried the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated by our operations in 2019 and 2020. The inventory, which was carried out according to the guiding principles of ISO-14064-1 and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, measured the amount of CO2 related to, for example, air conditioning, electricity consumption, Internet use, personal travel and business travel.

To offset its emissions, FÉRIQUE Fund Management turned to Planetair+ÉTS, which has been offering carbon credits from Gold Standard certified projects since 2015. In this way, FÉRIQUE Fund Management offset all its 2020 emissions, namely a total of 45.65 tonnes of CO2 equivalent. The organization also made an effort by contributing to the Carbone Scol’ERE educational program. This additional contribution was equivalent to an offset of 4.56 tonnes of CO2.  Even though the purchase of carbon credits allows FÉRIQUE Fund Management to offset its carbon footprint, the organization aims to achieve carbon neutrality that is also based on active, long-term reduction of its GHG emissions. Thus, achieving carbon neutrality in 2021 is not only a source of pride but also a springboard to future initiatives.

Reducing our use of paper

In 2021, we continued our efforts to significantly reduce the use of physical materials – mainly paper – in our various communications. To that end, we continued our transition to digital communications. In 2021, we converted our InfoFÉRIQUE newsletter to a fully digital format. Similarly, our clients can now obtain their tax slips online in addition to being able to download their quarterly statements directly from our Portal. We encourage our clients to embrace these digital communication channels and, along with us, to take another small step that helps preserve our natural resources.
