Aeroports de Montreal Joins DEFI CLIMAT Campaign

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 21, 2008) - Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) is proud to mark Earth Day by joining the Conseil regional de l'environnement de Montreal, Equiterre and the Conference regionale des elus de Montreal in participating in the DEFI CLIMAT (Climate Challenge) campaign.

DEFI CLIMAT is co-chaired by Isabelle Hudon, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, and Steven Guilbeault, spokesperson for the Equiterre organization. This vast campaign against climate change is aimed at encouraging the public to take concrete initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).

ADM is encouraging its employees to make commitments to reduce their own GHGs and will be providing them with information tools to raise their awareness of the environmental impact of their actions.

In addition, ADM President and Chief Executive Officer Jim Cherry along with representatives of the aviation industry will be signing tomorrow in Geneva a declaration of commitment to action on climate change. For more information, visit www.enviro.aero.

ADM considers the environment and sustainable development to be important issues and its ISO 14001 environmental management system certification, obtained in 2000, was renewed in 2004 and 2007. Since 2005, ADM has been a partner in the City of Montreal's sustainable development plan.
