(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) June 28, 2011 - The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) has just published its third Sustainable Development Report, GRI checked at Application Level C. The report is available at

The results presented in the STM’s 2008, 2009 and 2010 sustainable development reports demonstrated that sustainable development is managed efficiently and effectively, in both day-to-day activities and development projects.
In 2010, the STM’s structured approach led to the formulation of a sustainable development corporate policy.

Among the highlights presented in the report:

  • Annual trips (bus and metro combined) rose 1.5%, to a total of 389 million. Correspondingly, some 510,000 tonnes of GHG emissions were avoided throughout the island of Montréal.

  • Some 700 bicycle racks were added next to metro stations.

  • The work-related accident frequency dropped 9% (36% compared with 2006), as a result of workplace health and safety initiatives.

  • The STM hosted a forum, where we met with the spokespeople of some 40 organizations to determine their needs and integrate them into our development projects.

  • The company acquired goods and services that supported 3,838 jobs, bringing the total number of jobs sustained to more than 12,800.

  • The employee mobilization index showed spectacular improvement: 27 points relative to 2006.

The full report is available in electronic format. Only a six-page summary of the highlights has been printed. A table supplementing the report contains over 70 sustainable development indicators that attest to the quality and seriousness of the STM’s approach in this regard.
