PROUD TO BE ECORESPONSABLE
Place Ste-Foy is proud of the many eco-responsible gestures placed within its walls. Here are some green actions we do:
• Construction materials, light bulbs, batteries, metals and small electronics are recycled.
• Place Ste-Foy composts more than 240 tons per year.
• The collection of recyclable and compostable materials is done every day at the doors of every shop.
• Place Ste-Foy set up the Solucycle system for the sorting of residual materials, recovering 50 tons of CO2, the equivalent of 13 cars on the road for one year. To learn more about the Solucycle system, click here.
Since the summer of 2016, 80 000 bees work in the hives installed on the roof of Place Ste-Foy. Thanks to Alvéole's workers, we harvest pure artisanal honey that is absolutely delicious, while providing urban habitat for these precious insects. Urban beekeeping raises awareness about the vital role of bees in agriculture and food production. Bees, butterflies, bumblebees and other pollinator populations are declining significantly around the world.
Did you know that bees are responsible for pollinating more than 130 fruit and vegetable crops worldwide - one-third of our food? It's a pride for Place Ste-Foy to join the movement for a greener city!
Holder of an accreditation from BOMA BEST, a program that evaluates the environmental performance of managers and operators of buildings, Place Ste-Foy has been implementing initiatives for several years with a goal of cardboard, glass and paper recycling rate of 70%.

Place Ste-Foy is proud to be accredited BOMA OR and HERE ON RECYCLE LEVEL 2.
Place Ste-Foy always wants to serve its customers better and take concrete action to preserve the environment. Therefore, four charging stations are installed in the Hochelaga car parkade, at the disposal of electric car users.

METROBUS STATION PLACE STE-FOY
Since February 2011, Place Ste-Foy and the Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC) have set up a new temperate station that stands out thanks to its heating system during the winter season and its comfort and accessibility amenities, especially for people with reduced mobility.
Place Ste-Foy has built this bus station both according to the high standards of its renewed architecture, but also in line with its environmental action plan.
