Club Med Québec Charlevoix, un projet responsable

Club Med Québec Charlevoix, un projet responsable


Québec and the Charlevoix region at large are magnificent biosphere reserves. It was really necessary to value it, to protect it, in a global way, with an approach that takes into account all aspects especially the protection of the biodiversity. Club Med will be the first building to receive BREEAM construction certification, not only in Québec but throughout North America. This certification is interesting because it is a broad topic, where we will focus on how to save water how to manage buildings and waste materials as well as preserving the biodiversity around. Ultimately, the building will be saving energy. What is interesting we have worked with our egologist experts, they were there from the beginning, they gave their recommendations for the building design so even in use, it could continue to improve the ecological quality of the site itself. This forms a link with the construction phase which is often not associated with the use of the building post-construction. Why is the Green Globe certification important for the Club Med Québec Charlevoix resort? It matters because in order to receive this certification, we have to implement a specific working methodology within all departments of the resort. We must also train our teams, and educate our customers. Each department will have a series of actions to put in place to limit the impact on the environment, the production of waste material, the reduction of food waste, etc It is really necessary to address these issues by keeping in mind the local community, the environment, and biodiversity. The sum of all these details will make a big difference. This approach we are following is a responsible and a decisive step for all the environmental concerns that needs to be taken care of in order for Club Med Québec Charlevoix to be considered as a top-notch resort.
