BIAS be­comes car­bon neu­tral

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - MOT DU COMMANDANT -

In or­der to pur­sue the eco­res­pon­sible ob­jec­tives es­ta­bli­shed a few years ago, the BIAS 2017 is pu­shing its efforts fur­ther by of­fe­ring the first car­bon neu­tral air show in the world.

In col­la­bo­ra­tion with UQAC's Car­bone Bo­réal team, BIAS has de­ve­lo­ped a series of mea­sures to com­pen­sate for the en­tire green­house gas pro- duc­tion ge­ne­ra­ted by the pre­sen­ta­tion of the event. The or­ga­ni­za­tion will in­vest $ 7,000 in plan­ting thou­sands of trees in en­vi­ron­ments where new fo­rests can be plan­ted and this will off­set the ap­proxi­ma­te­ly 250 tonnes of green­house gases used in the air show. Other en­vi­ron­men­tal meas- ures conti­nue to be im­ple­men­ted at the air show, such as the res­pon­sible col­lec­tion of re­si­dual ma­te­rials. In col­la­bo­ra­tion with the Eu­re­ko group, a re­cy­cling and com­pos­ting sys­tem has been de­ve­lo­ped in recent years and will reach its peak of ef­fi­cien­cy du­ring the 2017 edi­tion.
