Sustainable Development

The STM and sustainable development

The STM contributes to the sustainable development of Montréal and Québec in two ways. First, because the service it provides offers citizens an efficient, safe, environment-friendly mode of travel, while also helping to improve quality of life. And second, because it acts responsibly by integrating environmental, social and economic considerations into all of its activities and business processes.

Sustainable Development Plan 2020

The Sustainable Development Plan 2020 draws on such sources as stakeholder consultations, the main objectives of the Strategic Plan 2020 and the environment in which the STM operates. These factors enabled us to identify the key issues which the Sustainable Development Plan 2020 must address.

Have a look at our Plan. You will discover 10 priorities revolving around two focus areas: sustainable mobility and sustainable management.

Sustainable Development Reports

The STM publishes its environmental, social and economic performance in an annual Sustainable Development Report in line with the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines.
