To successfully fight climate change we must improve practices in various fields. The Québec government has launched many programs to help businesses make the transition to a lower-carbon world.
The residual forestry biomass program is designed to cut GHG emissions and fossil fuel consumption by funding energy conversion projects to promote the use of energy from residual forestry biomass.
ÉcoPerformance is a program designed to cut the GHG emissions of businesses, municipalities, and institutions by funding projects and measures tied to energy production and consumption and improving industrial processes.
PTMOBC provides financial support to help municipalities and businesses build facilities for treating organic waste through biomethanization and composting. The program’s aim is to cut GHG emissions and total residual material volumes.

Part 4 of the Prime-Vert Program is designed to improve the quality of information available to help reduce GHG emissions and support better decision-making for agricultural producers seeking to implement more climate-friendly practices.
PSEF provides financial support for experimental fertilization projects. The adjusted fertilization reference values that emerge will enable agricultural producers to improve their financial performance and protect the environment for the benefit of all Quebecers.
Technoclimat provides financial assistance to property developers and promotes the development of new technologies and innovative processes in the areas of energy efficiency, emerging energy sources, and GHG emission reductions.
Other energy efficiency programs are offered by Ministère de l’Énergie et des Ressources naturelles and its partners. These programs offer many different types of financial assistance.
PETMAF is designed to lower GHG emissions by improving energy efficiency of organizations and businesses in the maritime, air, and rail transportation sectors. The program promotes the use of more efficient equipment and materials and lower-GHG energy sources.
Businesses, municipalities, and organizations considering installing charging stations at the workplace may be eligilble for financial assistance under this program.
The Écocamionnage green trucking program provides financial assistance for heavy vehicle owners and operators. The program is designed to promote the use of technologies that improve energy efficiency, while reducing GHG emissions from freight transportation.
PREGTI is a program designed to lower GHG emissions in the transport of people and freight by developing intermodal projects and promoting rail and maritime transportation.
