Social responsibility

A primary concern

As a major player in the energy sector in Québec and Vermont, we regard sustainability as a primary concern. We aim to make a positive community contribution and reducing our environmental footprint in all our actions.

Our approach

We attach great importance to the preservation of the environment. To mitigate or reduce environmental risks. We were the first natural gas distributor in Canada to obtain an ISO 14001 environmental management system (EMS) certification in 2000. The certification, which covers our natural gas distribution activities in Quebec, including the liquefaction, storage and regasification (LSR), was renewed every three years and verified in the meantime by certification maintenance audits. Maintaining the EMS, allow us to consistently determine strategic directions in terms of the environment, to set environmental objectives and targets and to monitor the results achieved. Since then, we have also been working with our employees to implement more responsible business practices in terms of the environment, society and governance (ESG).

Our four strategic axes

Through four strategic axes, Énergir aims to become a sought-after and appreciated partner by all those who aspire to better our energy future.

1- Decarbonate and sustain

Reduce emission volumes of fossil natural gas and redirect the use of our infrastructure toward net-zero solutions by increasing energy efficiency and the proportion of renewable energy in our networks.

2- Growth and diversity

In collaboration with our affiliated companies, develop new, less emissive and renewable activities in line with major energy trends and thus maximize the value of our assets through a balanced opportunistic and proactive approach, by selling and acquiring assets.

3- Optimize and develop our business models

Evolve and adapt our methods to perform better in a competitive and rapidly changing world by controlling our costs to maintain the long-term competitiveness of the energy we distribute,adapting our business models and modernizing our business capabilities to support organizational transformation andensuring physical, digital robustness and resilience of our installations.

4- Stand out as a socially responsible company

Maintain our social responsibility actions by having a positive impact on communities and customers, promoting the prevention of physical and psychological risks at work and ensuring a distinctive employee experience that promotes the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion.
