ABOUT QUÉBEC NET POSITIF
Québec Net Positif is a think tank whose mission is to raise awareness, equip and mobilize Quebec businesses to help them take advantage of the low-carbon economy and optimize their positive impact on the entire community. Quebec is one of the very few jurisdictions in the world that produces nearly 100% renewable electricity. Our goal is to help businesses take full advantage of this asset, as well as other strategic advantages of Quebec, to seize low-carbon business opportunities, create wealth and jobs and maximize the collective impact of Quebec on reducing emissions on a global scale.
Inspired by the 'net positive' project initiated in Europe, the organization aims for companies to recognize the benefits of going beyond mitigating their negative sustainability impacts and recognize their enormous potential to create positive impacts on society and the environment and, put back more into the global system than they take out.
The ‘net positive’ spirit translates into an inspiring vision for purpose-driven businesses and leads them to focus on what matters the most, drive systemic changes and identify regenerative business opportunities for long-term, sustainable impact. ‘Net positive’ creates a race to the top by increasing the sustainability ambition level of companies to have a positive impact on society and the environment. It can also lead to enhanced company innovation, brand reputation, stakeholder relations, and sales. Moreover, net positive can be a powerful way to generate and assess results following the adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris climate agreement.
