From the outset, the cooperative has been committed to making sustainable development and the environment key mandates.
As an outdoor destination committed to sustainable development, we want to do our part to protect our planet. The 1% for the Planet movement enables us to pursue this mission.
So, when you make the committed choice to buy from Vallée Bras-du-Nord, you're supporting, on a larger scale, an environmental cause that transcends borders.
It's important for our organization to raise your awareness, because as a user of our products and services, you can make a difference in your own way. We invite you to read the following press release to better understand our approach, and to consult the list of other Quebec tourism companies involved in this project.
The planet's cry from the heart
"The urgency to act has never been greater! Our planet is dying and we can no longer bury our heads in the sand. We are part of the problem, and with this project, we can also be part of the solution!" - Richard Rémy, founder of Karavaniers, spokesperson and initiator of the project. AVENTUREQUEBEC.CA
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is categorical in its 5th Assessment Report, concluding that humans are indeed the main cause of climate change.
For its part, the United Nations (UN) states that "climate change is the defining issue of our time, and we are at a critical juncture. [Without immediate action, it will be much more difficult and costly to adapt to the future consequences of these changes".
Proud to contribute
Vallée Bras-du-Nord is committed to donating 1% of its annual sales to Quebec environmental organizations dedicated to preserving Quebec ecosystems and fighting climate change.
This means that when you purchase a product or take advantage of a service offered by our cooperative, an amount corresponding to 1% of your purchase before taxes will be donated to the Fonds Plein Air 1% for the planet who contribute :
- Protecting or restoring Quebec ecosystems;
- Offsetting the carbon emissions of our businesses;
- Fighting climate change.
For the sake of transparency, we are committed to keeping you informed, through an annual report on our various platforms, of the actions that will be undertaken within the Fonds Plein Air 1% for the planet.
One action among many
This commitment to return 1% of our sales to the Fonds Plein Air 1% for the planet is one of many commitments we are making to ensure the sustainable development of our activities and our region.
It's very important for our cooperative to demonstrate consistency in our commitments, and this gesture is precisely in line with our social mission to protect our natural resources and promote a healthy lifestyle.
Out of a concern for solidarity and a deep-seated desire to see changes take place that will benefit future generations, we are joining this movement. We hope that this gesture will raise our customers' awareness of the responsibility to act that falls to all of us, individually and collectively. We believe that, together, we must do our part to enable future generations to enjoy, as we do, the wealth of natural resources that surround us.
