The STM’s Sustainable Development Timeline

The STM’s Sustainable Development Timeline

The STM’s sustainable development commitment is formally expressed in its Corporate Policy on Sustainable Development adopted in 2010 and its Sustainable Development Plan 2020 adopted in 2013. The Plan follows up on the Sustainable Development Action Plan 2007−2011 and ties in with the Strategic Plan 2020, one of whose six priorities is to place sustainable development at the centre of all the STM’s decisions.
