Project Summary

This project involved reviewing municipal and regional policy and guidelines with an eye to promoting sustainable development and green business practices among the 12,000 businesses in the Pearson Eco-Business Zone around the Toronto Pearson Airport. We identified best practices, reviewed current policies, and made recommendations for policy additions and changes to support green business of all types and sizes. The resulting Policy Harmonization Strategy will enable the multiple municipal partners to share and build knowledge, and to identify and adopt common practices across the region.
