Environment

As a supporter of the principles of the International Co-operative Alliance, Desjardins Group has always been an advocate of long-term development that balances the 3 dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.

Accordingly, Desjardins adopted a sustainable development commitment policy to provide a framework for our efforts in terms of products and services, management practices and socio-economic leadership.

Environmental protection is a key factor of our sustainable development commitment policy. To put this commitment into action, Desjardins has implemented various initiatives.

Sustainable mobility

Alternative Transportation Program

Alternative Transportation: A new route for your commute!

Desjardins Group has adopted its Alternative Transportation Program to encourage its employees to avoid traveling alone by car when commuting between work and home or for local or regional business travel.

It aims to reduce the transportation-related ecological footprint by highlighting the resulting health benefits for all concerned.

The Alternative Transportation Program includes 4 components that:

  1. encourage the use of public transit (train, bus, metro, ferry)
  2. facilitate carpooling
  3. encourage active transportation (walking, biking, jogging, inline skating, etc.)
  4. change professional commuting habits for local or regional business travel to avoid travelling alone by car, by using technological tools (video conferencing or teleconferencing)


Alternative transportation is beneficial for everyone

Employees:

  • improve their health and quality of life thanks to physical activity
  • reduce stress
  • reduce commuting-related costs
  • gain a feeling of pride by taking concrete action with respect to their personal values about health and the environment

The community:

  • benefits from a better air and environmental quality thanks to the reduction of pollution, noise and traffic congestion

Transportation electrification

Desjardins supports transportation electrification by installing public charging stations near its buildings. Some caisses also have electric charging stations in their parking lots.
