Flourish through environmental action and innovation - Greening Greater Toronto supports the vision of a region that flourishes economically, socially and environmentally through environmental action and innovation by its leaders and diverse communities.Imagine a GTA where the air is so clean and healthy you can see for miles on hot summer days, where the lake and rivers are clear and beaches are safe for swimming. Imagine a waste management system that captures and puts to use the materials we currently send to landfills. Imagine a GTA where people travel quickly from Oshawa to Oakville – and everywhere in between - on a comprehensive transit system. This is our vision for a Greener Greater Toronto and it is within reach.
