IGA merchants are concerned about the environment, as evidenced by the many environmental initiatives they’ve carried out over the years.
The IGA supermarket in Saint-Pascal-de-Kamouraska was the first in Canada to earn LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), a clear indicator that IGA merchants are ahead of the curve with respect to sustainable construction.

Always keen to support our customers in going green, we have also created Fonds Éco IGA which, thanks to the million dollars allocated annually since 2008, finances environmental projects, and supports initiatives such as the rainwater barrel distribution tour throughout Quebec.
