Our Mission


Together with the community, we work to protect nature, mitigate climate change and create a healthier, more environmentally responsible city.


Everyone in Burlington recognizes that we are all connected to, and dependent on the environment, and acts on this understanding to ensure a good quality of life and a sustainable future.


Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity — We embrace an inclusive community where individuals are valued, respected and empowered to reach their potential and endorse the ten commitments as presented in the Halton Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Charter. You can learn more about BurlingtonGreen’s commitment to EDI here.

Respect for Nature — We are a part of nature and must live in harmony with it.

Leadership — We provide positive, effective, and educational environmental leadership.

Integrity — We operate with transparency, accountability, professionalism and a solution focus.

Steadfastness — We stand by our convictions and persistently strive for our goals.



Through awareness, advocacy, and action, we advance our mission and goals with a Strategic Plan to direct our impactful work. The plan emphasizes community participation and empowerment to support our overarching aim to create a much stronger culture of environmental stewardship among residents and all sectors in Burlington.

Celebrating 15 years of collective impact, we apply a solutions approach to address the climate and ecological crisis locally. Our sustainable mobility, zero waste and nature-based programming comprise our organization’s current strategic priorities.
