EnviroCentre Business Services

Sustainability and good business go hand in hand. As we move toward a low-carbon future, we need to ensure our local businesses are well-prepared to thrive, adapt, and support a climate-friendly economy.

First and foremost, our collective efforts must be directed at reducing emissions. In Ottawa, we are working towards a 70% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030 – that’s less than 10 years away.

To get there we need businesses on board. The choices made by Ottawa’s 25,000 businesses can make a significant difference in reducing community emissions in our region and in leading the way towards a better future.

Studies indicate that the best way for businesses to effectively reduce carbon emissions is to set clear targets and track annual carbon emissions so we encourage all businesses to follow this path through EnviroCentre’s business program.
