Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) gives presentations at the Canadian Stewardship Conference, a major event held every other year to bring together various curbside recycling stakeholders as well as eco-organisations managing extended producer responsabilité programs across Canada. ÉEQ will host the next edition in Montréal in 2017.

 

ÉEQ and the Carton Council signed a cooperation agreement designed to increase quantities of materials recovered and improve the recycling rates of aseptic and gable-top containers processed by Quebec’s curbside recycling system. View the press release » 

 

ÉEQ cooperates with the Institute for Product Development on many ecodesign projects in order to provide tools to contributing companies wishing to adopt best practices for the optimization of containers, packaging and printed matter.

 

ÉEQ is a partner of the Observatoire ESG UQAM de la consommation responsable (OCR) for the ecodesign segment of the Responsible Consumption Barometer.

 

ÉEQ is a partner of the Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) Forum 2015, in Boston, a nationwide non-profit U.S. organization that focuses on reducing the impact that consumer products have on health, safety and the environment throughout their life cycle.

 

ÉEQ cooperates with Groupe Agéco on a number of life cycle analysis initiatives in order to develop expertise and help contributing companies apply practices that optimize their containers, packaging and printed matter.

 

ÉEQ has been certified by RECYC-QUÉBEC in accordance with the Environment Quality Act since 2005 to develop Schedules of Contributions and collect company contributions, which are then redistributed to finance municipal curbside recycling programs in Quebec.

 

ÉEQ is a partner of the Association des directeurs généraux des MRC du Québec, which brings together the managers of Quebec’s 89 regional county municipalities (RCMs), and will give a conference at their annual assembly. 

 

To support its Innovative Glass Works Plan, ÉEQ established a strategic partnership with Krysteline Technologies, a British company with technology that takes up the challenge of single-stream materials collection, and Machinex, a major Quebec equipment manufacturer who will be Krysteline Technologies’s first North American distributor.

ÉEQ is now associated with the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) in a major partnership to identify innovative applications that integrate recycled glass in road infrastructures. View the press release »

2013

ÉEQ, Eco-Responsible Partner of Mosaïcultures

Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) is proud to be an eco-friendly partner of the Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal 2013 competition. The event will be held from June 22 to September 29, 2013, at the Montréal Botanical Garden.

This year's theme, Terre d'Espérance (or land of hope), reflects ÉEQ's values and mission and is in perfect sync with ÉEQ’s role as the representative of companies who market containers, packaging and printed matter in Quebec under the Environment Quality Act. The sums paid by the organization’s contributors finance Quebec's municipal curbside recycling programs.

A first for the organization, its partnership with Mosaïcultures is one of many efforts to raise public awareness about companies' contribution to a greener Quebec and, following the Recycling is Remaking campaign, about recovering more and better. Simply put, it is a continuation of efforts over the past ten years that have resulted in the tremendous growth of materials recovery in Quebec.

During this international event, about forty horticultural sculptures from twenty countries will vie for the attention of the public and the selection panel. A million visitors from the Montréal area, other parts of Quebec and elsewhere are expected to come to the Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal 2013 competition this summer. They will have an opportunity to learn more about materials recovery and sustainable development in an inspiring and eco-friendly setting.
