For over 10 years, the success of the City of Montreal sustainable development approach has been based on the engagement and commitment of Montrealers and the municipal administration. Adopted in June 2016, the city's 2016-20 sustainable development plan follows up on two previous plans. It is based on a network of actors in diverse spheres who share the responsibility of reaching collective sustainable development targets. We are convinced that reducing energy consumption generates competitive advantages for firms and a better quality of life for the community.
