Green Bond Program

Since 2017, the Government of Quebec proceeds to issues of province’s Green Bond Program. It is a financing program dedicated to projects generating quantifiable benefits in terms of environmental protection and more specifically:

  1. Greenhouse gas emission (GHG) reduction
  2. Climate change adaptation

Four STM projects were chosen for the first issue of Quebec’s Green Bond Program

  1. Acquisition of 458 AZUR cars
  2. ‘Réno-systèmes’ Program
  3. ‘Réno-Infrastructures’ Program
  4. Acquisition of 258 hybrid buses

The Government of Quebec has committed to publish an annual Report on Project Progress and Tracking of Benefits in Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation.
