On September 20, 2018, Fonds Éco IGA officially awarded the first 100% electric refrigerated home delivery van to IGA Louise Ménard located in Nun's Island. The contest was part of an innovative initiative led by Fonds Éco IGA that aimed to optimize residual waste management and Action Réduction certification as part of Fonds Éco IGA's 10th anniversary celebrations. IGA Louise Ménard was the first of four happy contest winners.
In coming months, vans will gradually be awarded to the other three winning IGA grocers in Sherbrooke, Rouyn-Noranda and La Baie. In all, four 100% electric IGA vans will be on the roads in the province. Another step forward for the environment!
