Last year the City of Ottawa committed to ambitious climate reduction targets, including reaching zero emissions by 2050 and dropping community emissions by nearly 70 per cent by 2030.

Like it or not, these targets mean big changes lie ahead for Ottawa’s businesses. They also mean there’s an opportunity for our city’s entrepreneurs to lead the way in building a greener and more resilient local economy. 

What that looks like depends on you, on us. Ottawa Green Business is a movement, a community and a green business program rolled into one.

Many local businesses are already going green. At Ottawa Green Business we want to be your voice. Other businesses are looking for ways to start their sustainability journey. We can give you the tools and know-how to make the best choices for your business.

All businesses worry about the cost of going green. We are here to show you that it doesn’t have to be expensive, in fact it will likely save you money and make you a better business in the long run. 

Joining the Ottawa Green Business online program costs $100 a year and provides you with tips, step-by-step sustainability guides and so much more. You will be joining local leaders like the Shaw Centre, Angela’s Bed and Breakfast, Carleton University, IKEA and the NAC in committing to climate action. And you will be helping Ottawa become the city it needs to be for a bright and promising tomorrow.
