Ontario Power Generation didn’t just turn green because it’s the thing to do. Biodiversity is in our nature. We’ve been committed to protecting Ontario’s environment and conserving biodiversity since we began operating. Over the years OPG has supported the planting of almost 5 million native trees and shrubs, and created habitats throughout the province that support a wide diversity of plant and animal species.
