In collaboration with our experts and the Climat Municipalité Program of the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight against Climate Change, the municipality of Saint-Mathias-sur-Richelieu completed its first GHG inventory and GHG emissions reduction action plan. This action plan proposes many significant initiatives like the establishment of a policy for the drinking water management, the installation of water-saving equipment in municipal buildings, the replacement of the municipal garage et the fire station heat systems, the formalization of carpool parking and the implantation of a new organic waste collection system.
“The municipality demonstrates its green commitment by implementing direct actions to reduce city controlled direct GHG emissions by 10.5% and global GHG emission by 0.2% (in comparison with 2012). We are proud of what we have achieved so far, and it is with great enthusiasm that we accept this recognition by Enviro-access”, explained Mrs. Jocelyne G. Deswarte, mayor of the municipality.
