Sustainable development

For a more sustainable FEQ

Because the Festival d'été de Québec dreams of thrilling festival-goers for many more years to come, the organization has placed sustainable development at the heart of its actions, both on-site and throughout the year, thanks to the involvement of a green committee.

A small gesture for infinite recycling

Every intact can placed in a blue bin will follow the right path : first sorted, then cleaned and processed by a dedicated recycling team at our integrated sorting center on our sites.

This simple action can go a long way since aluminum is 100% recyclable.

On foot, by bus or by bike, it's more eco-friendly

Thanks to its central location, the FEQ is easily accessible by a multitude of active and sustainable transportation methods: bus, walking, biking, and carpooling.

During the Festival, the Réseau de transport de la Capitale offers attractive rates, more frequent Metrobus services, and late-night routes.

Several aVélo stations are scattered around the FEQ sites, making it easy to borrow these electric-assist bicycles.

Our partner Desjardins offers two free self-service bikes parking areas near all the stages.

Towards carbon neutrality

FEQ takes concrete initiatives to offset and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

To do this, we purchase Gold Standard certified carbon credits through Planetair.

These credits allow us, among other things, to support conservation and restoration projects of natural and sensitive habitats in Quebec.
