Pierre Renaud, counsel at McCarthy Tétrault, receives Pierre Lachance tribute award

Montreal, November 11, 2014 — McCarthy Tétrault is pleased to announce that Pierre Renaud, counsel in the firm's Business Law Group and head of the Environmental Law Group for the Québec region, received the Pierre Lachance tribute award last night at the fifth edition of the Envirolys Gala, organized by the Québec's council of environmental technology companies (Conseil des entreprises en technologies environnementales du Québec/CETEQ).

Created as a tribute to CETEQ's co-founder and first CEO, Pierre Lachance, the award recognizes a public figure whose achievements and commitment have contributed to the development and promotion of Québec's green economy or CETEQ. This award applauds Mr. Renaud's outstanding ongoing contributions to sustainable development and environmental protection throughout his career.


"Pierre was one of the very first legal professionals to specialize in the environmental sector in Québec. His track record is both wide-ranging and unique," said Éric Gosselin, leader of the firm's Business Law Group for the Québec region. "Our clients receive high-level strategic advice on the environment, sustainable development and social acceptability thanks to Pierre's incomparable expertise in his areas of responsibility, most notably as former chair of Québec’s environmental public hearings office (Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement/BAPE)."


CETEQ is an association of private companies operating in the principal sectors of Québec's green economy. It seeks to promote sustainable development and private sector expertise in the environmental industry. In their day-to-day activities, CETEQ's members provide an on-the-ground presence as part of environmental clean-up efforts. In keeping with his mission of incorporating sustainable development principles and protecting the environment, Mr. Renaud donates his time as a CETEQ volunteer. Drawing on his support and in-depth environmental knowledge, CETEQ has carved out an enviable position for itself in the public arena.
