Sustainable Development Incentive Measures

Through the Sustainable Development Incentive Measure, clients of the SADC des Laurentides and CLD Laurentides have the chance to meet with a sustainable development counsellor.

This three-step consultation provides an introduction to SD practices:
1. Target the company’s primary SD challenges/issues;
2. Find sustainable avenues that encourage the organization’s profitability;
3. Recommend concrete actions to realize dividends.

What are the benefits of sustainable development?

ECO-EFFICIENCY : savings on energy, water, material, waste management and operating costs.

HUMAN RESOURCES : the ability to attract and retain the best talent as well as to increase employee productivity.

SALES REVENUE : increased market share, reduced risk and better financing options.

« You don’t have to apply all of these measures to realize significant dividends. The two most important are a focus on eco-efficiency and employee productivity »

Bob Willard, pioneer in corporate sustainability strategies and analysis.
