Aeroports de Montreal Honoured at the Gala de reconnaissance en environnement et developpement durable de Montreal

MONTRÉAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 12, 2011) - Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) is proud to be named winner, in the "Enterprise" category, at the Gala de reconnaissance en environnement et développement durable de Montréal, held today in Montréal. This award acknowledges ADM's efforts to reduce its dependence on the automobile through its Écono-Écolo-Pratique program.

The Corporation has made continuous efforts to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and its dependence on the automobile. In 2009, ADM enlisted the services of the Centre de gestion des déplacements St-Laurent and introduced an innovative program, offering generous incentives to encourage its employees to use alternative modes of transportation for their daily home-work commute.

This program was greatly enhanced by the STM's introduction of the 747 Express Bus service connecting the airport and downtown Montréal 24/7.

The results speak for themselves: 27% of ADM employees are participating in the Écono-Écolo-Pratique program.

ADM is the local airport authority responsible for the management, operation and development of Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau and Montréal–Mirabel international airports since 1992. The Corporation employs 600 people at both airports and at head office. ADM has been ISO 14001 certified since 2000.
