YGB Hub: Ottawa’s Sustainable Business Network

Your Business Matters.

Sustainability and good business go hand in hand. As one of Ottawa’s 18,000 businesses, your choices matter. Small choices have a big impact when businesses work together.

Cities play a crucial role in assuring environmental sustainability and in the fight against Climate Change. By joining YGB Hub, we are proud to work with stakeholders, community partners and our residents to ensure that we leave a green and sustainable legacy to our future generations
