Our Commitment to our Community and the Environment
NSI is committed to investing 2-4% of its revenues in social and environmental issues.
We believe that to be successful, generating profit is no longer enough. In addition to creating economic value, NSI is committed to creating a positive impact for our community and the environment. Our role is to lead by example and inspire the business community to integrate sustainable and responsible practices.
When we undertake transformation projects for our clients, we always seek to assess the environmental impact in order to reduce it.
In addition, NSI will provide pro bono professional fees, as needed, for projects that directly impact the environment and society in a positive way.
Coastal erosion threatens not only the Magdalen Islands archipelago, but all shorelines worldwide. In fact, the 12,000 measurements collected since 2005 by the Laboratoire de dynamique et de gestion intégrées des zones côtières at the Université du Québec à Rimouski (UQAR) show that the shores of the Magdalen Islands have retreated by nearly 8.5 metres since 2005, due to the erosion affecting them.
Alliance Myrique offers companies the Shoreline Protector certification program. For each project carried out by NSI, Alliance Myrique grows the seedlings and gives them free of charge to the government partners who identify the planting zones.
