Station Mont Tremblant is the first Québec business to earn Ecocert Canada’s ECORESPONSIBLE ProgramTM Level 3 certification, by meeting all its required criteria and passing its inspections.

Designed to encourage, accelerate and facilitate the integration of sustainable development principles and the implementation of best practices, this program is a Conseil des industries durables (CID) initiative. While it proposes a four-level progressive certification process, its Level 3 – Optimum – tier recognizes a firm’s push towards improving its sustainable development practices and exerting its influence by way of its actions and activities. Station Mont Tremblant earned Level 1 certification in 2017, and Level 2 in 2019.

To reach its goal of reducing its carbon footprint by 5% by 2022, the Laurentian ski area set up an Ecoresponsibility Charter to which it attaches great importance. Over the past 20 years, it has deployed countless green initiatives, from waste management best practices promoting recycling and composting, reducing light pollution to save energy, watering with untreated water, carpooling,  zero paper best practices, using free shuttles, off-road vehicles and electric carts, introducing solar panels and e-car charging stations, protecting the mountain’s ecosystems during development and snowmaking, implementing a green hotel program as well as steering promoters towards hosting and managing eco-friendly events.

“We committed to reducing our carbon footprint a number of years ago, so future generations can live experiences in nature that are as rich as the ones we live today,” stated Annique Aird, Vice-President of Sales, Marketing and Communications at Station Mont Tremblant. “Achieving this next level of certification allows us to become involved in every aspect of our sustainable development – be it social, economic or environmental. It is also a testament to our values and to our willingness to improve our overall perspective of sustainable development.”
