Addere, service conseil en développement durable is offering guidance and consulting services in sustainable development (SD) in response to growing pressures in the marketplace that are nudging businesses towards using more sustainable practices. The goal of these services is to support businesses in the region that wish to launch themselves successfully into this new sector. Sustainable development includes economic, social and environmental dimensions; consultation includes a diagnostic analysis of these three aspects as they relate to the needs of the company.
The many financial, human and environmental advantages of the approach are appealing to numerous entrepreneurs. To date, almost 20 regional businesses have made the shift to sustainable development.
An initiative launched by the Estrie region's four SADCs in 2010, these services have also been available to interested municipalities.
