Green Venture empowers Hamiltonians to implement greener practices in their homes and communities to make our city a climate champion.
Green Venture recognizes that EcoHouse is situated on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabeg, and Attawandaron nations, within the lands protected by the Dish with One Spoon wampum agreement. We acknowledge that Green Venture is also part of this agreement and are committed to being stewards of the land. We further acknowledge that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Today, the City of Hamilton is home to many Indigenous peoples – including the Métis and Inuit – from across Turtle Island (North America). We are committed to reconciliation and protecting the land for those who will inherit it. We recognize that we must do more to learn about the rich history of this land so that we can better understand our roles as residents, neighbours, partners and caretakers.

Our Core Values
We continually learn how to best engage our community. We welcome and promote new ideas, technologies, and willingness to change.
Progress happens when individuals and organizations collaborate and learn together. We work with large and small businesses, governments, community-based groups and individuals to support and encourage change.
A gracious, optimistic approach to personal engagement helps us foster behavioural change. We are honest and acknowledge differing viewpoints without judgement.
We meet people where they live, work, and play. We design our programs and services to provide positive, measurable benefits to them and our community.
We care about our work and take a professional approach to everything we do. We are committed to delivering valuable programs and services with integrity and strong financial accountability.
Volunteers, staff, board members, funders, partners, community leaders and the public each play a vital role in fulfilling our mission. We work hard, always encourage one another, have fun, and celebrate our achievements.
We support members of our community from all social, ethnic and economic backgrounds.
