The recent releases of the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report and the federal government’s 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan have discouraged many people. In Quebec, however, it is already possible to considerably reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and energy waste.
Ecosystem’s experience has shown us that project results are achieved when interests are aligned.

Andre Rochette, Ecosystem’s Founder and President, explains what’s needed from our governments to reduce emissions in an editorial published this week in La Presse.
