Energy Efficiency
OUR STORY
Ambioner arose from the vision of Miguel Duarte e Sousa, who wanted to use his expertise to further sustainable development initiatives and the energy efficiency of buildings in Québec.

This vision soon grew with the addition of three new associates, whose desire to produce quality work and improve the operations, comfort and energy performance of buildings helped propel Ambioner to new heights. 

Seven years later, with thirty expert resources supported by a dynamic and innovative executive team, Ambioner has become a leader in the field of energy efficiency projects in Québec.
