Presentation of the results of the Business Transition Barometer MANUFACTURING SECTOR. Discover the first Quebec Manufacturing Business Transition Index!


1. Encourage more and more companies, including SMEs,
to rely on in-house or external environmental expertise

The Transition Index for businesses that say they "rely on internal or external environmental expertise" is 58.2, compared with 25 for businesses that say they "do not rely on internal or external environmental expertise". As a result, businesses with access to expertise implement more than twice as many climate actions as those without.


Relying on environmental expertise is the key factor that explains the implementation of climate actions within Quebec companies of all sizes, in all sectors and in all regions.


In particular, companies with at least 1 full-time employee and/or an external advisory committee are implementing more climate actions, and are more likely to be aligned with a likely transition pathway in the face of the accelerating transition to a low-carbon economy.

2. Promote and strengthen the strategic role of executives and boards of directors

Managers' commitment is directly linked to the implementation of climate actions and all aspects of alignment with a transition pathway. 


Knowledge of the company's significant sources of GHG emissions, even without having carried out a complete GHG inventory, is directly linked to the implementation of climate actions.

3. Value the role
of employees and managers at all levels  

Along with the climate crisis, it is the ideas and concerns of employees and managers that are the two main triggers for companies to take action.

4. Promote the importance of resilience and adaptation to climate change

In the face of increasing extreme weather events, to be considered "aligned with a likely transition pathway", companies need to be aware of the main risks inherent in climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy across their value chain, and put in place transition plans to be prepared to deal with them.

Find out how far companies in your region or sector have come
in implementing climate actions and transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
