Congratulations to Victor Poudelet, Sustainability and Greenhouse Gas Management Consultant at the Montreal office, on his appointment to the Board of Directors of the Fondation des jeunes pour un développement durable (FJDD). In this capacity, our expert is particularly working on strategic planning and funding program development mandates.
Furthermore, last March 22, over 170 people attended the FJDD’s Gala Actions Jeunesse. The honorary chair of the event was Johanne Gélinas, Montreal Sustainability and Greenhouse Gas Management Partner, who presented the Excellence Award, on behalf of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, to a young person who stood out for her community involvement.
April 22: Earth Day
It’s a matter of sustainability! Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton reminds you that April 22 is Earth Day, international environmental awareness day, created in 1970 by former American Senator Gaylord Nelson. In Quebec, Earth Day has been celebrated since 1995. On Earth Day in 2013, nearly 50,000 gathered in downtown Montreal to participate in a major march for hope.
