Economy Canada

Together, we’re demonstrating a more sustainable economy is possible.

Across 7 communities and with over 250 businesses, we’re shifting expectations and leading a movement.

Green Economy Hubs support and celebrate businesses as they set and achieve sustainability goals. To date, businesses in Green Economy Hubs have collectively reduced 59,105 tonnes of GHGs – the equivalent of taking over 12,600 cars off the road for one year.

The need for climate action is more clear than ever – and businesses can, should, and need to be part of that action if we are to get to the sustainable future we all want to see.
