Alcan embarks on the "Road to Biodiversity" with the Quebec Wildlife Foundation

SAINT-FULGENCE, QUE-Alcan, in partnership with the Quebec Wildlife Foundation (Fondation de la faune du QuÈbec), is launching a new sustainability initiative aimed at conserving and enhancing biological diversity in the area covering the north shore of the Saguenay River between Saint-Fulgence and Tadoussac in Quebec. Known as the "Road to Biodiversity," this new initiative will focus along the road 172 corridor and will combine efforts from key partners in scientific research, local governments, and the environmental and corporate communities to protect and showcase the area's unique diversity in flora and wildlife. Alcan is investing $200,000 (Cdn) directly into the initiative and another $1.2 million (Cdn) into other related sustainability and biodiversity projects along the same corridor. The "Road to Biodiversity" initiative will be managed by a non-profit organization consisting of stakeholders representing several sustainability and environmental organizations in the region.
