Green Leaders and Awards
Toronto is a city of environmentalists and examples of green leadership are all around us – in our communities, schools, businesses and organizations.
We can all be green leaders. Stand up and be recognized for the great work you're doing in your community, and help others learn from your success.

Who’s the greenest of them all? You tell us. Nominate a person, project or organization in your neighbourhood for one of the City’s environmental awards of excellence. And see who’s leading the way to a cleaner, greener Toronto.
Strong commitment, innovative programs, and over $8 billion in investments are getting results and transforming Toronto into one of the greenest cities in the world.
In 1988, Toronto hosted the first world conference on global warming. And in 1991, Toronto was the first city to establish an agency devoted solely to climate change. Since then, we’ve built on our green traditions, created new programs such as Live Green Toronto to engage the public, and city-wide initiatives like Tower Renewal to revitalize communities while reducing energy consumption.
