At the third annual climate conference hosted by the Canadian Climate Institute, Philippe Adam announced the company's commitment to implementing credible and effective actions to make Pomerleau's facilities and operations carbon neutral by 2050.  

The CEO made the announcement in front of 400 people in Ottawa. In addition, more than 3,000 people from all over the world were virtually connected for the event, which included Geoffrey R. Pyatt, Assistant Secretary for Energy Resources, U.S. Department of State, and Corinne Le Quéré, Chair, France High Council on Climate. 

In an update on the Net Zero Challenge, the Honorable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, also referred to this commitment. More details here. 

It's now clear to everyone that climate change is the greatest threat of our time. As Canada's leading construction company, we have a responsibility and a key role to play. We are working with all the leaders in the construction industry's value chain - our material and service suppliers, our customers and our employees - to develop the expertise and methods that will enable us to deliver increasingly sustainable projects for generations to come.

Pomerleau has recently worked on a number projects such as:

  • The REM, a 67 KM automated electric train project. 
  • The deconstruction of Montréal’s Champlain Bridge where we’ve recycled close to 300 000 tons of concrete, steel and asphalt. 
  • The country’s largest industrial facility for Canada Post, which meets national design standards for a zero-carbon building.
