To create a sustainable and resilient Milton by supporting and promoting activities that enhance our environment and help reduce the impacts of climate change.
Miltonians understand that we are all connected to, and dependent upon, the environment. We must act together to enhance the livability, sustainability and resilience of our Town for now and for our future.
We are a part of nature and have a responsibility to protect and promote it.
We provide positive, effective, and educational environmental leadership that is openly conveyed to all.
We operate with transparency, accountability, and professionalism, focused on building solutions.
We believe in a cooperative approach to problem solving that combines attentiveness towards all partners and a wide range of interests, and knowing where and how to contribute best.
We promote sharing knowledge to raise awareness and encourage skills that help drive community action to affect responsible change.
We welcome all who share the vision and values of a sustainable Milton.
We use actions, education and advocacy to advance our mission, vision and goals. We emphasize community participation, collaboration and empowerment.

Protect and enhance Milton’s natural heritage features; including the Niagara Escarpment and the surrounding Greenbelt area, as well as the urban canopy, watercourses, wetlands and woodlots; in support of increasing biodiversity.
Create a culture of environmental stewardship across all Milton sectors.
Advance sustainability through a continued dialogue on urban design, land development, and transportation systems with Miltonians and policy-makers at all levels.
Advance the circular economy by promoting the continual reuse of products and their packaging, and the promotion of a zero-waste lifestyle.
