Eco-responsibility

Parc Découverte Nature and its various eco-friendly measures.

Local purchases

  • Emphasizing the identification of locally produced goods.
  • Increasing the number of local products for sale in its on-site store.
  • Purchasing of local products for its snack bar.
  • Hiring a local workforce.
  • Maintaining on-site local repair services for its manufactured items, tools, electronics and/or materials.

Sort your waste

Composting :

  • Using compostable dishes.
  • Compost bins, recycling and waste identified with signs to help customers and staff compost properly.
  • Recycle and sort everything that may be recycled.
  • Have batteries and hazardous products recycled at recognized drop-off points.
  • Use of recycled paper, cardboard and toilet paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
  • Ask suppliers to avoid over-packaging products.

Biodegradable products

  • Use in part biodegradable hygiene products for household maintenance, untreated wood for our constructions and water-based paint and stains.
  • Avoid buying petroleum products, for example we no longer buy plastic bags, we sell reusable bags.

Reuse

  • Use reusable dishes and containers (e.g.: coffee cups, water bottles…) within our company and ask our staff to do the same.
  • Drinking water is limited on the site. Customers are invited to bring their well-filled canteen in the purchase confirmation and in the reminder email before their visit. On site, we offer the possibility to fill the bottles with large sizes of bottles, at a lower cost than small water bottles.

Green energy

  • Prioritize rechargeable batteries. (CB)
  • Use eco-friendly lighting: turning off the lights before leaving is one of the most necessary actions as part of an eco-responsible effort.
  • Carpooling between colleagues.
  • For meetings, simple ecological gestures to limit travel: when meeting with multiple people, rely on videoconferences as much as possible.
  • The possibility of teleworking, under the agreement of the company.

Wildlife

  • Respect wildlife. Observe wildlife from a distance. Do not follow or approach wild animals.
  • Be respectful of other visitors and concerned about the quality of their experience.

Socio-economic aspect

  • Provide an employee handbook and appraisal system.
