Social commitment and sustainable development
Sustainable development, what is it? It is a long-term vision of the development of a company integrating ecological and social aspects into its strategic planning, with the aim of ensuring its sustainability while reducing its negative impact on the planet.
Our commitment to our employees and our customers is important, but also for future generations, which is why Services Paysagers Dominique Filion judiciously integrates Sustainable Development into its business practices.
We hold the level 1 certificate issued by the organization Addère.
Concretely, this involves the company's social commitment to its customers, employees, partners and community. In addition to offering a friendly and fair work environment to our employees and partners, we offer our clients the possibility of integrating sustainable development techniques and processes into your project.
Here are the highlights of a green project at Services Paysagers Dominique Filion:
Reduction of heat islands:
- Use of light colored paving stones/slabs to reflect light;
- Vegetated roof to create an insulating effect (temperature control in the building), increase biodiversity and reduce GHG.
Water management :
- Channeling of runoff water to dry wells;
- Use of permeable pavement, replacing conventional practice (asphalt/concrete pavement) to reduce water runoff, allow percolation into the ground as well as recharge the water table.
- Planting of trees to increase canopies (e.g. shading on parking lots), promote biodiversity and reduce GHGs;
- Planting perennials and shrubs reduces ambient noise, provides insulation and an effervescent living space for pollinators.
- Minimize ecological footprint by using natural materials; cedar wood, natural stone, etc.
- Use of sustainable materials; precast concrete, composite wood, etc.
In addition, Dominique Filion Landscape Services is among the experts in eco-responsible landscaping design and implementation listed in the SchoolFinder Fund directory. As such, our services could be financed as part of a project submitted to the Fonds Écoleader funding program.
Our landscape architects and garden designers will be happy to answer your questions on the subject and will be able to offer you solutions that go perfectly with your dream project.
