The Electric Circuit and Our Charging Stations

Since June 2011, Les Rôtisseries St-Hubert has been a founding partner of Hydro-Québec’s Electric Circuit, a revolutionary project designed to reduce automotive CO2 emissions by introducing public charging stations for electric vehicles. We are very proud that all of our rotisseries capable of offering an electric charging station have been equipped with one, and to date, 15 of them feature a fast charging station. Providing charging infrastructure for Quebec’s electric vehicle motorists is an opportunity that harmonizes perfectly with our company’s culture! What’s more, many of our delivery cars are hybrid or electric.

St-Huvert – Our Green Approach Program

In 2013, St-Hubert took the lead and became the first restaurant chain in Quebec to implement compostable material collection at all its establishments. These rotisseries, which represent almost 90% of our network, have all achieved the highest performance level of the “ICI on recycle +" program. Did you know that 98% of the waste from our rotisseries is compostable or recyclable? With St-Huvert – Our Green Approach and other initiatives, approximately 42 tons of our establishments’ compostable material are diverted from landfills every year.

Our Packaging

As part of our comprehensive green initiative, St-Hubert launched a new line of recyclable packaging in 2009. By completely discontinuing the use of Styrofoam, significantly reducing the use of polystyrene, and instead using recyclable or compostable materials, we save the equivalent of 250 loaded garbage trucks! Our packaging can be sent for selective collection after a simple rinsing, and overpacking has been prohibited, of course. At St-Hubert Retail, we have significantly reduced unnecessary packaging, and all the cardboard from our various suppliers’ products is recycled.

Discontinuation of Plastic Straws

In August 2018, to continue our efforts to improve sustainability and reduce waste in all of our rotisseries, Les Rôtisseries St Hubert discontinued the use of plastic straws across its network. Now, all our rotisseries across Quebec, Ontario, and New Brunswick offer biodegradable straws upon request.
