Sustainable Development

Located in downtown Quebec City, this ambitious eco-friendly project received the sustainable building innovation award at the Gala Habitation 2012.

Cité Verte's energy supply is provided by a thermal heating system that uses biomass.

Alternative waste processing methods are also an important part of Cité Verte's environmental strategy.

Residual waste management is ensured through a fully automated network underground pipes.

Efficient water management requires rainwater retention and proper water treatment.
