Through a recent partnership agreement with the Fonds d’action québécois pour le développement durable, our teams are joining forces to increase the number of Quebec entrepreneurs on the path to sustainable development.

The cornerstone of this partnership was laid Thursday, February 16, in our Québec City regional office, with an interactive activity called Passage à l’action, or taking action, bringing together entrepreneurs from different horizons and sustainable development experts.

The Forum was a big success, gathering seasoned, dynamic specialists, such as Audrey Lanier and Fatao Traoré, circular economy advisors, Sarah Gauthier-Kirouac, HR management and eco-friendly and organizational practices improvement advisor, and Jean-Charles Vandenberghe, Myriam Fortin and Jordane Deschamps, Ecoleader agents.
The activity was structured around two joint development sessions, focusing mainly on circular economy principles.

Of course, the main objective was to foster the integration of sustainable development in businesses in the region and help make connections between entrepreneurs to establish solid networks of people who share the same values.

Many Capitale-Nationale entrepreneurs accepted the invitation, and the opportunity to discuss with peers was greatly appreciated. “What I valued most was meeting and talking with other entrepreneurs supported by Evol who share my values and who have the same challenges. It was motivating,” said Béatrice Amyot from the company Ré/forme.

This was the case for a number of entrepreneurs that Evol has the pleasure of supporting, such as Mélissandre Reffo (Esprit de famille), Anick Tardif (Groupe Toumoro Inc.), Béatrice Amyot (Ré/forme), Andrée-Ann Adam (Animora Inc.), Marie-Renée Grondin (Timininous), and Marie-Pier Catellier (ManyWake). Our regional director for Capitale-Nationale, Noémi Harvey, as well as Marilyne Simard, sustainable development coach at Evol, were also on hand.

Supported and coached by the experts from the FAQDD, guests openly discussed their ideas and experiences, and pooled their intelligence to arrive at innovative solutions for taking action.

“The activity was enriching and a potential catalyst, allowing us to develop avenues for concrete solutions in sustainable development, in addition to creating beneficial ties between regional businesses being financed,” said Marie-Renée Grondin, Timininous.

The entrepreneurial community is increasingly positioning itself as an agent of change and integrating environmentally responsible values to business models. This shows the desire of Quebec businesses to create a more equitable, sustainable, and inclusive economy. This is why Evol and FAQDD are committed to supporting these initiatives and contributing to the development of tomorrow’s environmentally responsible businesses.
