We give differently
Our approach to community involvement is one of collaboration. In order to perpetuate our significant social impact, Énergir has revised its Community Investment Policy.
Énergir is committed to a more responsible energy future and has been associated since 2016 with Carbone Scol'ERE (Carbon Scholarship Program), a collective educational movement that aims to bring about real and sustainable behavioral changes in the fight against climate change.
Dans la rue
The new Dans la rue Van is the first vehicle to run on renewable natural gas in Montreal! Thanks to its collaboration with Énergir, Dans la rue is able to continue its mission with homeless youth all while taking a green turn. Renewable natural gas helps reduce greenhouse gases and fight climate change. It is 100% renewable and contributes to reduce carbon emissions. To know more about the project, we invite you to listen to the podcast (in French only).
For more than 25 years, Énergir and its employees actively participate in the Centraide Campaign. By pooling their energies, they raise donations annually, which goes to Centraide, to support more than 1,700 local organizations and projects throughout Quebec.
Ruelle de l’avenir
Énergir is one of the founding organizations of the Ruelle de l'Avenir , which was created in 2008, a unique place where several hundred elementary school students from the Centre-Sud and Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhoods can learn differently. Future Alley encourages kids between the ages of 2 and 18, as well as their families, in their learning and academic success.
Montreal Science Center
Énergir has been a major partner of the Montreal Science Center since 2019. The objective is to educate the public on how organic wastes can be transformed into energy, like renewable natural gas. We collaborated in collecting selective wastes that could be transformed into energy and in installing an interactive window called Digesto that explains the transformation of organic wastes into renewable natural gas.
Chamber of Commerce
Énergir is involved with several Chambers of Commerce as an event partner: the Junior Chamber of Commerce of Montréal (JCCM) , the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montréal (CCMM) and the Chambre de commerce de l'Est de Montréal (CCEM) , plus it also supports the Mercuriades business awards from the Federation of Quebec Chambers of Commerce (FCCQ) . These are some of the partnerships through which Énergir contributes to the development of Québec entrepreneurs and encourages the business community.
Énergir is also very involved with municipalities through two of its closest partners: the Union of Quebec Municipalities (UMQ) and the Quebec Federation of Municipalities (FQM) . The company participates in many events and projects organized by these organizations, and calls on them for the purposes of various reflection exercises.
Énergir is involved with several professional associations, including the Association of Québec Economic Development Professionals (APDEQ) , the Building owners and managers association BOMA, the Association of Institutional Property Managers (AGPI) , The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers ( ASHRAE) , Montreal and Quebec City Chapters, the American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) , the Association de la construction du Quebec (ACQ) and the Quebec Trucking Association(ACQ). These are some of the partnerships through which Énergir supports business and institutional markets and gets involved with active economic actors.
