Heir to the former “green committee”, a Sustainable Development Committee was set up in 2018. Bringing together a dozen employees from different departments, it coordinates sustainable development actions, relays and standardizes best practices, and even carries out a watch and offers recommendations to the concerned departments.
Committee members represent TOHU or the Festival at round tables, conferences and networking events. With the help of partners such as the Conseil québécois des événements écoresponsables or the Center québécois de développement durable, training is regularly offered to employees. A welcome booklet is also given to new employees to educate them about eco-responsible actions.
Since October 2018, thanks to support from the OFQJ, TOHU welcomes a sustainable development coordinator yearly to support its actions and update internal policies and certifications. In the process, TOHU adopted a Sustainable Development Action Plan for the 2020-2022 period. Click here to find out more.
