This case study profiles the work of Quebec-based Collectivités ZéN (zéro émission nette), a collaborative that was launched by Front commun pour la transition énergétique in 2021. The movement represents a collective aspiration to advance just and equitable transitions by bringing community stakeholders together to engage in transformative actions for decarbonization.
The study puts a spotlight on four of the climate transition hubs in Quebec that make up Collectivités ZéN:
- The Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region and the work of the Grand dialogue pour la transition socio-écologique du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean
- The Ahuntsic-Cartierville region and the work of Mobilisation environnement Ahuntsic-Cartierville (MEAC)
- The Laval region and the work of Laval ZéN
- The Lachine region and the work of ClimAction Lachine

Note: This document was published in 2022 and uses the word stakeholder to reference the different parties connected to the outcomes of a situation or decision.
Since using the term, we as an organization have learned more about the origins of this word and its original uses. We want to acknowledge this history and communicate our desire to change which we are still developing as an organization.
