Table 6: Green Procurement

Meeting Policy Requirements

Has the department incorporated environmental performance considerations in its procurement decision-making processes?


Summary of initiatives to incorporate environmental performance considerations in procurement decision-making processes:

  • Training was provided to the administrative and contracting community and they have been made aware of the Green Procurement Policy;
  • The use of PWGSC SOA’s which have a portion of Green Procurement built in;
  • Applying Green Procurement Principles and Practices to DOJ Procurement Tools.

Results achieved:

Presently it is very difficult to gather data from IFMS as this information is not available. Training has been provided to the administrative and contracting community and Green Procurement Principles have been incorporated in DOJ’s Contracting Documents.

Contributions to facilitate government-wide implementation of green procurement:

The contributions are training and incorporating Green Procurement Principles in our Contracting Documents.

Green Procurement Targets

Has the department established green procurement targets?


Are these green procurement targets the same as those identified in your Sustainable Development Strategy (Table 5)?


Summary of green procurement targets:

  • All staff have received some training on the application of the Green Procurement Policy.
  • Promote usage of established standing offers for goods and furniture (established by PWGSC or internal to the department) that support the Green Procurement Policy
  • Encourage client groups to consider targeting greener products.

Results achieved:

It is very difficult in providing qualitative achievements as our Financial System (IFMS) can not support such requirements. The Department is more aware of Green Procurement through training that was given to the administrative and contracting community.
