Working together to reduce the ecological footprint of outdoor and adventure tourism in Quebec!

Nature is Quebec's greatest wealth. It is the raw material that allows our companies to offer incredible experiences to our visitors.
At a time of climate emergency and major environmental issues, our nature and adventure companies decide to act to protect the environment by joining the international 1% for the Planet collective and commit to donating 1% of their sales to the Outdoor Fund 1% for the Planet.

For a more sustainable and responsible outdoors stay un Québec, choose a company who contributes to the Outdoors Fund 1% For The Planet.

Investing in the protection of nature in Quebec

The Fonds Plein Air 1% pour la planète supports structuring projects that protect and enhance Quebec's ecosystems and help our businesses adopt concrete actions to reduce their ecological footprint.

The funds are given to Quebec NGOs that contribute to

  • The protection or restoration of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems
  • Offsetting the greenhouse gas emissions of our businesses
  • Fighting and adapting to climate change

The funds are also invested directly in Quebec's nature and adventure companies to support them in implementing sustainable development actions.



  • For exemple : Groupe de recherche et d’éducation sur les mammifères marins (GREMM); Société pour la nature et les parcs du Canada, section Québec (SNAP) ; Carbone Boréal, Planet Air, Arbre Évolution... etc.

The funds will also be invested directly in Quebec nature and adventure businesses to help in the implementation of sustainable development actions and their ecotourism accreditation process.

Our 2020 targets

Despite the difficult economic situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 1% for the Planet Outdoors Fund has taken off with confidence. Here's how most of the $45,000 raised in this first year of operation is being invested:

30,000 for the conservation and protection of ecosystems and wildlife

Nearly $8,000 to help Aventure Écotourisme Québec businesses develop a sustainable development action plan

7,845 is being invested in a project carried out in partnership with Les Pages vertes, which allows Aventure Écotourisme Québec's member businesses to receive free assistance in carrying out a diagnosis and a sustainable development action plan and to obtain an eco-responsible rating.

5,000 for the fight against climate change

In partnership with Planetair, 222 tons of C02 will be offset by the purchase of Gold Standard carbon credits, which is equivalent to 119 round-trip flights between Montreal and Paris in economy class!
