Every little thing makes a difference!


Green Key Global is the only international certification program highlighting the actions taken by the tourist accommodation sector to reduce its environmental impact. Auberge du Lac Taureau is proud to have been awarded 3 GREEN KEYS thanks to our achievements in environmental management and social responsibility. Our management team has implemented sound environmental programs, improved management practices, training programs and technical solutions that have benefited both the environment and the local community. That's why we're committed to offering our guests responsible, sustainable tourism accommodation. 


The Auberge du Lac Taureau is proud to be one of 5 Quebec hoteliers chosen in 2022 to participate in the circular economy showcase project. This project, in collaboration with RECYC-QUÉBEC, the Ministère du Tourisme (MTO) and the Association Hôtellerie du Québec (AHQ), aims to help tourist accommodations adopt best practices in sustainable development. This two-year project involves documenting, testing and disseminating best practices in circular economy in the tourist accommodation sector. It also involves raising awareness and mobilizing accommodation businesses, customers and citizens to adopt best practices. Hotel managers are thus encouraged to take action, and have a range of approaches at their disposal to initiate or intensify actions that preserve resources from a circular perspective.
