The Ottawa Green Business program is thrilled to welcome some new OGB Online members to our sustainable business network in the last few months!

Each of these workplace organizations is on its own sustainability journey, building knowledge and engagement among staff and taking steps toward an improved environmental impact: 

CP Business Solutions is a team of image strategists and creative problem-solvers whose goal is to exceed your expectations with marketing excellence. 

KRP Properties owns and operates 32 buildings in the Kanata area and supports tenant businesses in their own sustainability journeys via a central KRP Green team, infrastructure improvements, and educational workshops. 

InitLive provides volunteer and event staff management software solutions, and is a certified B Corporation

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) manages .CA domains on behalf of all Canadians with an office in LEED Gold certified building, and previously completed a building walkthrough to identify sustainability opportunities. 

Congratulations on all of your work so far, and we look forward to continuing the journey with our growing network toward a net-zero future for Ottawa!

Weekly Tips

Maximize Natural Lighting

Did you know that taking advantage of natural light can lead to significant health and wellness benefits while lowering your energy consumption?

Be strategic in how you set up your home office, desk, or workspace to maximize natural light coming in. Placing your desk near a window or installing a well placed mirror can amplify natural light.

You can adjust your workspace or even your working hours seasonally to maximize the benefits and minimize your carbon footprint!

Bonus: it will likely reduce waste as staff and management begin to keep a close eye on purchasing cycles.
