We bring people together, fill them with wonder and create unforgettable moments. Every gesture we make in terms of sustainable development is part of our desire to ensure that future generations can fully enjoy these moments of pure happiness shared with friends and family!
We have achieved level 2 of the Bureau de normalisation du Québec standard for responsible event management for the organization of the 2023 edition of the International Balloon Festival of St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. This event was classified by the Réseau des femmes en environnement and its Conseil québécois des événements écoresponsables.
We proceeded to electrify our operations. Previously, we used diesel-powered generators to keep our operations running smoothly before, during and after our event.
Thanks to the collaboration of the City of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, we were able to develop permanent and removable equipment, enabling us to connect to Hydro-Québec's high-voltage line.
This shift to renewable energy has already enabled us to reduce our emissions by 100 tonnes of CO2, equivalent to 100 round trips between Montreal and Paris or 600,000 km by car.
