Because the future depends on it

B Corp (B Corporation) certification is awarded to companies that meet strict standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. In recent years, more than 8,000 companies have joined the B Corp movement. Why are we seeing a steady increase in the number of companies opting to join the movement? Is it a way for companies to attract new partners, to stand out from the competition or to recruit top talent? These are all key factors of strategic importance, but the real answer to this question is as simple as it is critical: “Because the future depends on it.”

The Right Tools for a Sustainable Transformation

Efforts to reduce the environmental footprint in the port, mining and metallurgy sectors have become imperative to ensure the sustainability of these crucial industries. The emergence and evolution of environmental tools has paved the way for innovative solutions to mitigate the negative environmental impacts of these activities. From the use of cutting-edge technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, to the introduction of sustainable waste management and ecosystem preservation practices, these tools offer essential and cost-effective opportunities for the responsible and eco-efficient governance of the operations of the companies concerned.

Towards Sustainable Transformation of Canadian Industries: Mining, Metallurgy and Ports

In a world where climate challenges are intensifying, we have limited time to act, and the private sector has a crucial role to play: all sectors and markets must transform. Canadian industries such as mining, metallurgy and ports play a central role in the transition to a more sustainable economy. Beyond their economic and strategic importance, these sectors have a significant impact on the environment and society, which is important to consider in the context of decarbonization.

The Digital Shift in Manufacturing 

Le secteur manufacturier est en constante évolution, et la transformation numérique joue un rôle essentiel dans ce changement. Les technologies présentes telles que l’automatisation, l’Internet des objets (IoT), l’intelligence artificielle (IA) et la réalité virtuelle (RV) transforment la façon dont les fabricants opèrent, créent de la valeur et interagissent avec leurs clients. Dans cet article, nous allons explorer ces différentes technologies de la transformation numérique dans le secteur manufacturier.

Asset Durability Management: Expertise at the Heart of Asset Management

Asset Durability Management (ADM) is a rapidly growing field of activity. Around the world, companies must balance their economic, social and environmental sustainability with the need to maintain and optimize their physical assets. With successive retirements, restructurings and relocations, corporate memory is being lost, as some of the knowledge and expertise disappears, making it difficult to determine the health and performance of assets. The development of cloud software such as a SaaS service has paved the way for significantly improved overall management of capital-intensive assets, whether they are infrastructure or equipment.

The Role of Engineering in ESG: Engineering the Future

While some of us must begrudgingly admit we have been working on ESG (Environmental Social and Governance) in all its forms for longer than we want to admit, until recently seeing any real progress has been far too slow. With climate change concerns now taking centre stage, by most accounts ESG has finally become “mainstream”. Ultimately, it will become just another term for doing good business.

This contemporary problem that threatens growth

According to a study by the Institut de la statistique du Québec, supported by data from Statistics Canada, there are more than 250,000 vacant positions throughout Quebec. The job market is increasingly under pressure. Since 2018, the demand for qualified workers is constantly increasing while the pool of resources is shrinking. A real scourge for the Quebec economy, the lack of personnel is a major barrier to the growth of SMEs in Quebec, particularly in the manufacturing sector, which represents 12.6% of Quebec’s GDP.
