The goal is for these initiatives to enable companies to improve their environmental performance and offer more eco-responsible products.
MONTREAL — Aéro Montréal is launching four new initiatives to help build a carbon neutral supply chain for the aerospace cluster with an investment of nearly $7.9 million.
This project was made possible through the financial participation of Canada Economic Development for Québec Regions (CED) and the Québec government.
In collaboration with its partners, Aéro Montréal is presenting solutions to its members in areas of the environment, the workforce, cybersecurity, and internationalization.
The goal is for these initiatives to enable companies to improve their environmental performance and offer more eco-responsible products, strengthen their cybersecurity, implement human resources practices that will contribute to the inclusion and diversity of their workforce, and commercialize their products and services to international markets.
“Our companies want to build a more sustainable ecosystem by focusing on the environment, diversity and inclusion,” said Suzanne M. Benoît, president of Aéro Montréal in a statement.
“They also want to adapt in an era of digitization where the exponential growth of data sharing is synonymous with the risk of cyber attacks. By offering dedicated support on each of these strategic themes, Aéro Montréal is providing solutions adapted to the evolution and growth of its members.”
Minister of Sports and Minister responsible for CED Pascale St-Onge attended Working Group Day to announce a non-repayable contribution of $6,367,290. This financial support is designed to support an eco-responsible recovery of the Québec aerospace industry. Additionally, the funds are also intended to help the implementation of the 4 Aéro Montréal initiatives and to continue the StartAero 360 project, which helps start-ups improve their value proposition and position themselves in the aerospace sector.
