Our Eco-Friendly Approach

Last year, Movin’On 2017 has earned a level 3 BNQ 9700-253/2010 certification (read the full report here, in french only). This year, our aim is to attain the same level, but with an even higher score than last year. One of our new targets is to maintain a material reclamation rate of 70% or higher during the event. Sorting stations are set-up outside the site to ensure that the garbage ends up in the right bin – compost, recycling or trash. All dishes used on-site are either compostable, ceramic or glass. To avoid generating unnecessary plastic, no single-use plastic bottle is sold at Movin’On; but there are water stations. In order to stay carbon neutral and to compensate for our greenhouse gas emissions, we offset our CO₂ emissions by acquiring carbon credits. Numerous low-carbon transportation options are offered to participants. It should also be noted that the entire site is supplied with hydro-electricity; no fossil fuel generator is used.
