In 2020, the SDBSL mobilized with the SDC de la rue Saint-Denis and the SDAMR to create an ecological transition initiative committee. This work made it possible to identify best practices but also the constraints and difficulties encountered by businesses in the Plateau. Today, everyone at their own level can make a difference by incorporating habits that will help the planet. On the occasion of the launch of the guide of the best eco-responsible practices for Plateau SMEs, we are sharing with you some of the Saint-Laurent boulevard merchants.
