Climate action is good for business.

Are you an organization based in the greater Peterborough, City of Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland County or Haliburton region looking to reduce your environmental impact?

Through learning events, coaching and customized tools, Green Economy Peterborough, a GreenUP program and business network, can support your sustainability goals while you:

Reduce operating costs
Enhance your brand profile
Become more efficient and resilient
Get ahead of regulatory risks and global trends
Attract and retain customers, clients and employees, and
Demonstrate leadership in our community

Customizable to your needs, you can join our business network and program through one of our three membership tracks:


Discover is for businesses that are at the beginning of their sustainability journey (or are a well-established green business). This membership will allow you to connect with the network and attend our educational events.



Insight is for organizations that are already actively reducing their carbon footprint but would like a greenhouse gas inventory report to learn of their reduction successes and opportunities.



Lead is the premiere membership track. Identified as a Green Economy Leader, businesses in this track are ready to commit to a comprehensive process in which they are coached to measure their greenhouse gas emissions, develop a plan to address them, and then work to achieve a reductions target. As mentors for the business community, the efforts of these business members are celebrated at events and in promotional features.

Green Economy Peterborough is part of an innovative, award-winning national network of Green Economy Hubs. Together, we’re demonstrating a more sustainable economy is possible.

When you join Green Economy Peterborough you join a future-focused network of over 300 Green Economy Leaders.
