FY 2018-19    
FY 2019-20    
FY 2020-21 -10.1%  

Strategies / Comments

  1. Targeted GHG emission sources include both facilities and fleet.
  2. Base year emissions from some very small Agri-Environment Services Branch facilities (97 sites) were derived from fiscal year 2004-05 data, and the data will be updated periodically (i.e. not annually). These smaller sites account for about 1.5% of Agriculture and Agri-Food’s (AAFC) total building energy use.
  3. Due to the absence of guidance in the Federal GHG Tracking Protocol on accounting for renewable power purchases for the fiscal year 2005-06 base year and in accordance with advice provided by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) officials, the reported baseline does not include reductions associated with the proactive purchase of renewable power in the base year. AAFC will adjust as necessary its reporting once guidelines have been established.
  4. As per the Federal GHG Tracking Protocol, the 2005-06 baseline includes emissions from the Central Experimental Farm central heating plant (CEF CHP), which is controlled by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) (Scope 2 emissions). However, the use of heating from the CEF CHP is being phased out and replaced with AAFC controlled decentralized natural gas heating systems, which will be reported as Scope 1 emissions in the future.

Strategies / Comments

  1. Definition: For the purposes of the ratio above, a printing device is all desktop printers, networked printers and multi-function devices.
  2. Scope: Due to AAFC’s portfolio of laboratories and many small buildings, the Department will be scoping out some printers predominantly due to building occupancy levels or space configurations limitations and specialized laboratory requirements (such as printers to spectrometers), as well as a limited amount due to security requirements. The corresponding employees will also be scoped out as applicable to ensure a representative ratio is reported.
  3. Method used for determining number of printing units: AAFC will use special software for monitoring and managing network printer devices. In addition, AAFC will use its asset management system to provide a total number of printers supplemented by a physical count for scoped-in facilities.
  4. Method used for determining the number of office employees: AAFC’s internal personnel directory for AAFC personnel count, with employees located in scoped-out facilities subtracted.
  5. Other info: A thorough review of all AAFC printing devices that will inform the strategy for achieving the 8:1 target by March 31, 2013 has been initiated.

Green Procurement Reporting For Departments and Agencies Not Bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act


Mandatory reporting on meeting the requirements of Section 7 of the Policy on Green Procurement, as applicable to departments and agencies bound by the Policy on Green Procurement but not the Federal Sustainable Development Act, should be reported here1.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Policy Implementation Status (Optional)  

Targets / Strategies / Comments

  1. In fiscal year 2011–12, the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB) will ensure that it meets all of the requirements of the Policy on Green Procurement.
  2. As part of their 2011–12 training plan, 50% of acquisition cardholders will be invited to take the online Green Procurement course (C215) offered by the CSPS.
  3. The CIRB will maximize the use of PWGSC consolidated procurement instruments.
  4. The CIRB will ensure that all paper purchases have a minimum of 30% recycled content.
  5. The CIRB will encourage employees to double-sided print to reduce paper consumption.
  6. The CIRB is in the process of consolidating its printing devices. Physical fax machines are being removed and faxes are routed to emails. As stand alone networked printers need replacement, multifunctional devices will be used instead. These printer consolidation initiatives will reduce the printing device inventory size, as well as promote a reduction in the amount of paper, ink toner and electricity used.
  7. The CIRB will ensure that surplus electronic and electrical waste will be sent to Computers for Schools to be reused. Components and parts that can not be reused will be properly recycled.
  8. Of note, for the above target areas, the CIRB will develop further implementation strategies, performance measures and scoping criteria, as required.


Notes:

  • 1 Alternatively, departments and agencies bound by the Policy on Green Procurement but not the Federal Sustainable Development Act (FSDA) can follow the approach required of FSDA departments for green procurement by setting and reporting on green procurement targets as specified in the "Green Procurement Targets" section in the above table.

Scope of target: Multi-purpose office paper used for internal operations.
Definition of employee: Employee is defined as a FTE employee. FTE data is based on the total number of hours worked by CRA employees and a standard work schedule.
Method used for determining paper consumption: Paper consumption is based on the quantity of multi-purpose office paper purchased. It is mandatory that all Agency multi-purpose office paper be purchased through Synergy, the Agency's on-line procurement tool. Paper purchases are broken down by branch and region, paper type, and quantity.
Method used for determining number of office employees: The CRA tracks FTE employee data. This data will be used to measure performance against this target.
Processes/reporting requirements to track the reduction of paper consumption: The CRA SD Strategy 2011-2014 will be used to establish, monitor, and report on activity-level performance related to this target. The CRA will report progress through the CRA SD PR tool on a semi-annual basis.
Roles and responsibilities: The CRA SD Centre of Expertise, Finance and Administration Branch, is the lead on this initiative and will coordinate activities to achieve the target and regularly report on Agency-level progress through the CRA SD PR tool. Branches and regions will also be required to implement activities and report on achievements at the branch/regional level.
Opportunities for continuous improvement: The CRA will prepare an annual paper consumption report to assess performance against this target and liaise regularly with branches and regions to implement paper reduction initiatives to ensure continuous improvement.
Plans/strategies for CRA engagement/communication: The CRA is developing a communications strategy for the implementation of the CRA SD Strategy 2011-2014, which includes the Federal SD Strategy targets. This plan will outline the engagement and communication tools to be used to ensure targets are met

Strategies/Comments
Definition of adoption within the green meeting guide: The Environment Canada Green Meeting Guide will be used as a reference for developing the CRA Green Office and Meeting Guide. In order to be adopted, the CRA Guide will require senior management approval. It will subsequently be distributed and promoted throughout the Agency, and posted on the National SD Web site.
Scope of target (e.g., size and type of meetings to which the Guide is applicable): The Guide will be applicable to all sizes and types of meetings.
Process/reporting requirements to track the use of the Green Meeting Guide: The CRA SD Strategy 2011-2014 will be used to establish, monitor, and report on activity-level performance related to this target. The CRA will report progress through the CRA SD PR tool on a semi-annual basis.
Evidence that the Guide has been adopted: Data such as Web site hits, the number of communications sent out, and survey results will be used to show the extent that the Guide has been adopted throughout the Agency.
Roles and responsibilities: The SD Centre of Expertise, Finance and Administration Branch, will lead this initiative and will develop, disseminate, and report on the adoption of the Guide at the national level. Branches and regions will be responsible for greening meetings and monitoring the use of the Guide at the branch/regional level.
Key components of the Guide: The Guide will include relevant sections on: planning green meetings, information sharing, and measuring the environmental benefits of green meetings (e.g., paper reduction, waste reduction, reduced transportation, energy reduction, green accommodations, and green procurement).
Opportunities for continuous improvement: One of the challenges the CRA will face is the difficulty in defining and measuring the "adoption" of the Guide. The Guide will be available on the National SD Web site and will be disseminated and promoted through the Agency. As the lead, the SD Centre of Expertise will identify opportunities for continuous improvement as the related activities are carried out to ensure that this target is met.
Mechanisms to evaluate the effectiveness of the Guide (e.g., audit, periodic review, monitoring): The effectiveness of the Guide will be evaluated by obtaining feedback from the branches and regions and employee surveys.
Plans/strategies for CRA engagement/communication: The CRA is developing a communications strategy for the implementation of the CRA SD Strategy 2011-2014, which includes the Federal SD Strategy targets. This plan will outline the engagement and communication tools to be used to ensure targets are met. The Guide will be disseminated throughout the Agency, promoted on the National SD Web site and communicated through other targeted means (e.g., promoted during national SD events).

Canadian Artists and Producers Professional Relations Tribunal

Greening Government Operations (GGO)

Overview

The GGO supplementary table applies to departments and agencies bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act, the Policy on Green Procurement, or the Policy Framework for Offsetting Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Major International Events.

Please note:

  • RPP refers to Reports on Plans and Priorities and represents planned / expected results.
  • DPR refers to Departmental Performance Reports and represents actual results.

Green Procurement Reporting For Departments and Agencies Not Bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act


Mandatory reporting on meeting the requirements of Section 7 of the Policy on Green Procurement, as applicable to departments and agencies bound by the Policy on Green Procurement but not the Federal Sustainable Development Act, should be reported here1.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Policy Implementation Status (Optional)  

Targets / Strategies / Comments

As a micro-agency of 10 FTEs (and actual strength of 7 FTEs), the Tribunal does very little procurement. It has no stand-alone building facilities and no vehicles, its IT hardware and IT services are provided under contract by the Public Service Labour Relations Board, and it uses limited office equipment and supplies (e.g., it has one photocopier/printer/fax machine for the entire organization). Nonetheless, the Tribunal will ensure that its procurement practices are consistent with the Policy on Green Procurement, and it will take steps over the 2011-2012 planning period to solidify its commitment to greening government operations.

  1. Approach: The Tribunal’s Manager of Corporate Services has been mandated to address all aspects of the Policy on Green Procurement.

  2. Management processes and controls: The Tribunal’s management will work to ensure that all procurement decisions are consistent with the Policy on Green Procurement. Specifically, management will analyze procurement relative to electrical and electronic equipment, printing, paper consumption, and meetings, identify environmental risks, and develop, in consultation with PWGSC, measures to mitigate the risks.

  3. Setting targets: Tribunal management, with the assistance of PWGSC as necessary, will set appropriate targets where necessary to mitigate risks. We expect to be able to set targets for disposal of surplus electrical and electronic equipment, paper consumption, and, possibly, green meetings.

  4. Training: At least one Tribunal staff member will complete the Canada School of the Public Service on-line course on green procurement in 2011-2012.

  5. Performance evaluations: Objectives related to implementation of the Policy will be included in the performance management agreements of staff responsible for procurement.



Notes:

  • 1 Alternatively, departments and agencies bound by the Policy on Green Procurement but not the Federal Sustainable Development Act (FSDA) can follow the approach required of FSDA departments for green procurement by setting and reporting on green procurement targets as specified in the "Green Procurement Targets" section in the above table.

Policy Implementation Status (Optional)  

Strategies / Comments

  1. Approach: The manager Financial and Administrative services has been mandated to address all aspects of the Policy in Green Procurement.
  2. Management Processes and Controls: All procurement over $500 at CFGB is to be approved by the procurement committee. In fiscal year 2011-12, the term of reference of the committee will be reviewed to add environmental considerations in the decision making of the committee. Furthermore, for service transactions the contract preparation form will be updated to include environmental considerations to track green procurement. CFGB continues to support the protection of the environment by having network printers set to duplex by default, by using the RDIMS to classify documents electronically therefore reducing the usage of paper and by reducing travel by using videoconferencing equipment to hold meetings with members outside NCR.
  3. Setting Targets: The CFGB purchases primarily involve office supplies, office furniture and IT equipment. These purchases will continue to be made through the use of PWGSC Standing Offer on products and services that provide best prices, better quality and a green procurement guarantee (e.g. recycled material, environmental performance)
  4. Meeting Targets: Target will be tracked in 2011-12 and reported in the DPR.
  5. Training: CFGB will require for fiscal year 2011-12 that existing functional specialists (1) and credit card holders (3) take the CSPS Course C215 by the end of fiscal year. The department will also require that all new functional specialist or credit card holders take the course within three months of being hired.
  6. Performance evaluation: In fiscal year 2011-12 the manager of Finance and Administrative Services and the functional specialist will have an objective included in their performance management agreement to ensure environmental considerations are taken into account in all procurement activities.

Strategies / Comments

  • Definition of Location: Region
  • Number of Locations with Canadian Heritage:
    • Canadian Heritage operates in 6 Regions in Canada:
      1. Western Region (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon);
      2. Prairies and Northern Region (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, North West Territories, Nunavut);
      3. Ontario Region;
      4. Québec Region;
      5. Atlantic Region;
      6. National Capital Region.
    • Approximately 80% of all Canadian Heritage employees are based in the National Capital Region.
  • Implementation Strategies:
    • In the National Capital Region, surplus EEE is centrally controlled by Contracting and Materiel Management Directorate (CMMD). Disposal takes place in accordance with the Treasury Board Secretariat’s Directive on Disposal of Surplus Materiel requirements and practices. 
    • An assessment of current regional practices and funding implications will be conducted to determine a process for rolling out the implementation plan to the regions. All regions will have fully implemented the EEE implementation plan by March 31, 2014.

Roles, Responsibilities and Key Activity Areas:

  • Responsibility Centre Managers are responsible for the management of assets. Once an asset is no longer required, they are responsible for identifying the asset as surplus and for informing the proper functional areas (e.g. CMMD, Facilities Management, Knowledge, Information and Technology Services (KITS), etc.).
  • CMMD manages the warehousing and storage functions associated with surplus EEE and oversees proper surplus EEE disposal, once the necessary verifications have been done by other potential stakeholders (e.g. KITS), using the appropriate disposal mechanism (Computers for Schools Program, Crown Assets Disposal, E-Waste Recycling DISO or Provincial Program, etc.).

Mechanisms to Evaluate Plan Effectiveness:

  • Canadian Heritage will rely on internal reports that will be generated through its Internal Financial Management System (SAP), as well as disposal records to evaluate the effectiveness of its EEE disposal activities.

Plans/Strategies for Intradepartmental Engagement:

  • The Federal Sustainable Development Strategy and the overall disposal strategies will be communicated to managers through the use of e-mail notifications.
  • Senior Managers will be made aware of the departmental position, action plan and practices.
  • Facilities Management and KITS will be involved in the disposal of surplus assets for which they have some responsibilities.

Notes:

  • 1. This would be demonstrated by achieving LEED NC Silver, Green Globes Design 3 Globes, or equivalent.

  • 2. The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) is a Special Operating Agency and a Branch of the Department of Canadian Heritage. CCI is the custodian of the properties at 1729-1731 St-Laurent Boulevard (a warehouse) and 1030 Innes Road (Laboratory and Office facility), Ottawa, Ontario. The building on Innes Road is leased on a Triple Net Lease and CCI is totally responsible for all operations, maintenance and repairs of the entire building envelop and systems. Until March 31, 2011, Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) is the service provider. From April 1, 2011, CCI will operate the building directly.

    Only GGO Green Building Goal 8.3 applies to the CCI building on Innes Road which is a special purpose space, leased by the Crown, with a triple net lease that expires in April 2015. CCI will operate directly the building operation and its maintenance. The process to renew the lease will start in 2011. CCI will develop a Strategic Sustainable Development Framework by April 2012, using the template being developed by PWGSC and will include all the necessary assessment. The assessment tools will include BOMA BESt (Building Environmental Standards), an appropriately tailored BOMA International Green Lease Standard, or equivalent (for more information, see: http://www.bomabest.com/). The framework will be updated in each reporting cycle.

    GGO Green Buildings Goals 8.1, 8.2 and 8.4 do not apply to CCI for the following reasons: 
      8.1: CCI does not have a new building and is not in a situation of "build to lease".
      8.2: CCI is not in a Crown owned building.
      8.4: CCI does not plan any fit-up or refit project up to 2012.

Canadian International Development Agency

Greening of Government Operations (GGO) 2011-2012 at CIDA

The Canadian International Development Agency has established targets with respect to the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy Theme IV: Shrinking the Environmental Footprint - Beginning with Government. Overall, these targets cover two key areas: (1) green procurement, and (2) e waste, managed print, paper consumption, and green meetings.

1. Targets for green procurement

a. Procurement of computers and screens
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Percentage of computers and screens procured using PWGSC green standing offers in 2011-2012 100%  

b. Procurement of furniture
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Percentage of furniture procured using PWGSC green standing offers in 2011-2012 100%  

c. Procurement of vehicles
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Percentage of vehicles procured using PWGSC green standing offers in 2011-2012 100%  


d. Staff training
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
A target will be identified in 2011-2012    

Strategies / Comments

The employee performance management process, including the learning plan, provides a framework for ongoing, open, and honest communication between supervisors/managers and employees. This process makes it possible to establish performance objectives that consider the needs of the employee and CIDA in achieving the organization's strategic objectives.


e. Processes and control measures
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Percentage of procurement identified as green in 2011-2012 100%  

Strategies / Comments

CIDA's financial system has been modified, so that it can be identified whether procurement of an asset is green or not. This improvement will allow CIDA to produce annual reports on the type of procurement, to identify procurement that does not meet criteria for the greening of operations, and to include justification of choices, or possibly to influence choices made.


2. Targets for electronic waste, printing management, paper consumption, and green meetings


a. Green and safe recycling of surplus electronic and electrical equipment
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Existence of an implementation plan for the elimination of electronic and electrical equipment generated by CIDA Draft  
Percentage of departmental sites whose implementation plan for the elimination of electronic and electrical equipment has been fully put in place at year-end 50% in
2011-2012
 

100% in
2012-2013

 

Strategies / Comments

The disposal of these assets is included in CIDA's asset management framework (currently being developed and scheduled to be implemented in 2011-2012). At present, 90 percent of electronic and electrical equipment disposal is green. Contracts are in place for the disposal of telephones and BlackBerrys. Computers are recycled through the Computers for Schools program or sent to PWGSC's Crown Assets and Disposal services. All electronic equipment with memory is checked prior to their disposal, to ensure the security of information they might have contained during their use. Employees responsible for asset management work with the team of information technology specialists to put suitable procedures in place to allow the fullest, most effective, safe, green management of electronic and electrical assets.

b. Average ratio of 8 office staff for each printing unit
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Printing units in proportion to the number of employees for the 2010-2011 reference year 5.6  
Printing units in proportion to the number of employees at year end 2014 10  

c. 20% reduction in in-house paper consumption per employee
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Total equipment (photocopiers, fax machines, network and personal printers) in 2010-2011 388  
Total equipment (photocopiers, fax machines, network and personal printers) in 2013-2014 200  

Strategies / Comments

In 2007, two-sided printing was set as the default on CIDA's printing systems. This allowed a reduction of about 15 percent. By 2014, the total number of devices (photocopiers, fax machines, network and personal printers) will be strategically reduced from 388 in 2010 to 195 by 2014. This will help to achieve the 20 percent objective.

d. Adoption of a green meeting guide
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Departmental protocol reviewed    

Strategies / Comments

CIDA has had a protocol for green meetings on its website since March 2008. This protocol will be reviewed by 2012. Communications activities will be carried out to remind managers and employees of the steps they can take to shrink CIDA's environmental footprint.


3. Other targets for greening government operations


a. Recycling of batteries, used ink cartridges, and compact disks
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Percentage of batteries, ink cartridges, and compact disks recycled in 2011-2012 100%  

Strategies / Comments

CIDA has put measures in place to ensure that batteries and compact disks are recycled through private firms. CIDA has also entered into a legal agreement with Mira, a non profit organization, to recycle ink cartridges. In pursuit of this objective, messages will be posted on CIDA's intranet site to encourage the use of these programs. Each year, CIDA recycles approximately the equivalent of 720 litres of shredded disks, 200 kilos of batteries and 1,600 ink cartridges.

b. Recycling of hand towels used in washrooms
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Percentage of hand towels used in washrooms at 200 Promenade du Portage and recycle in 2011-2012 100%  

Strategies / Comments

For the past two years, CIDA has negotiated with SNC Lavalin and PWGSC to set up a program to recycle hand towels used in washrooms at 200 Promenade du Portage. The initiative was finally implemented in 2010-2011. This paper will be used for composting. CIDA will continue to negotiate with PWGSC to extend this service to all areas occupied by CIDA.


c. Means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GGEs)
Performance measure RPP DPR
Target status  
Number of countries of focus where video/teleconference equipment was installed in 2011-2012
5  

Strategies / Comments

In 2009-2010, CIDA procured about $320,000 of equipement for 8 new video/teleconference rooms. Installation was completed in the early months 2010-2011. These new facilities should help to reduce the number of trips to the field. CIDA procedures about 30 hours of video/teleconferencing per week. A substantial increase can be expected when 5 countries of focus are provided with equipment procured through DFAIT.

Annex A

2011-12 Report on Plans and Priorities

Mandatory reporting on meeting the requirements of Section 7 of the Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) Policy on Green Procurement, as applicable to departments and agencies bound by the Policy on Green Procurement but not the Federal Sustainable Development Act.

Targets / Strategies / Comments

Approach: CNSC’s DG of Finance and Administration has been mandated to address all aspects of the PWGSC Policy on Green Procurement.

Management Processes and Controls: The CNSC will be reviewing its contracting activities to include environmental considerations in the performance of the work where applicable. Furthermore, procedural documents on procurement and materiel management will be reviewed and updated to integrate environmental considerations in decision-making, from the procurement through to the disposal process. Subject to the completion of the implementation of a new version of the CNSC’s financial system, the CNSC will update the procurement module to improve the tracking and monitoring process of purchases from PWGSC green consolidated procurement instruments.

Setting Targets: The CNSC ensures that all purchases are made through PWGSC green consolidated procurement instruments, where available. The CNSC has established a number of targets for 2010-11. In addition, CNSC is planning to roll out the acquisition card to all support staff. In doing so, the federal government’s greening policy will be brought to the new cardholders’ attention within three months of receiving the card.

Meeting Targets: The CNSC expects to meet most of the targets for 2010-11.

Training: The CNSC requires that all existing functional specialist staff take Canada School of Public Service (CSPS) Course C215 by the end of 2010-11.

Performance Evaluations: Performance objectives related to green procurement were included in a senior contracting officer performance appraisal for 2010-11. In addition, the manager will include performance objectives related to green procurement in functional specialists’ performance evaluation for 2011-12.

8.8 By March 31, 2014, each department will reduce internal paper consumption per office employee by 20%. Each department will establish a baseline between 2005–2006 and 2011–2012, and applicable scope.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status    

Number of sheets of internal office paper purchased or consumed per office employee in the baseline year selected, as per departmental scope

3,156 sheets/ employee in 2010–2011*  

Cumulative reduction (or increase) in paper consumption, expressed as a percentage, relative to baseline year selected

FY 2011–2012 -10%

FY 2012–2013 -15%
2,683 sheets/employee
 
FY 2013–2014 -20%
2,525 sheets/employee
 

* This baseline for 2010–2011 has been determined from paper purchases through the Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) standing offer for paper for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010–2011 (April, May and June of 2010). Therefore, it is a proxy for the entire fiscal year. In subsequent Reports on Plans and Priorities and Departmental Performance Reports, this baseline will be updated to include purchase data from the outstanding three quarters and therefore be more accurate. The following assumptions were made: 1) each package of paper has 500 sheets, and 2) Grand and Toy paper is representative of all paper purchases.

Strategies / Comments

  1. Scope: Our Department has elected to include all departmental employees (4,498 employees), instead of just office employees.
  2. Method used for determining paper consumption: PWGSC standing offer usage data.
  3. Method used for determining number of office employees: TBS Population Affiliation Report.
  4. Reporting requirements: Director General of Administration, Security and Accommodation uses PWGSC standing offer information annually.
  5. Roles and responsibilities: Director General of Administration, Security and Accommodation is target lead.
  6. Plans for engagement: Procurement personnel and acquisition card holders are now required to purchase paper only through PWGSC standing offers. This has been disseminated via central communication and is documented in the procedures manuals available on the website.

Green Meetings Target

8.9 By March 31, 2012, each department will adopt a guide for greening meetings.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status

Strategies / Comments

  1. Scope of the green meeting guide: All departmental or interdepartmental meetings held at our offices with at least 10 participants.
  2. Reporting requirement: Our Administration, Security and Accommodation Branch is responsible for creating a strategy to implement the green meeting guide and monitoring its use.
  3. Evidence that the green meeting guide has been adopted: None to date (data expected in the next fiscal year).
  4. Roles and responsibilities: Director General of Administration, Security and Accommodation Branch is target lead.
  5. Key components: Planning, travel/accommodations, procurement/hospitality and tracking/accountability.
  6. Opportunities for continuous improvement: It has proven difficult to monitor the use of the guide. CIC has formed a working group to consider monitoring mechanisms to track progress.
  7. Mechanisms to evaluate: The effectiveness of the green meeting guide will be evaluated in 2014.
  8. Plans for engagement: Departmental policy mandating use, e-mail dissemination, topic for management meetings, green meeting training seminar.

Greening Government Operations (GGO)


Mandatory reporting on meeting the requirements of Section 7 of the Policy on Green Procurement, as applicable to departments and agencies bound by the Policy on Green Procurement but not the Federal Sustainable Development Act, should be reported here5.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Policy Implementation Status (Optional)  

Strategies / Comments

Approach: The DG, Finance and Contracting for the Courts Administration Service (the Service) will play a co-ordination role for initiatives related to green procurement in collaboration with key internal stakeholders in the Judicial, Registry and Corporate Services Branches. The Service will enhance its efforts with respect to green procurement in 2011‑12, and will set out specific targets for green procurement in its 2012‑13 Report on Plans and Priorities.

Management Processes and Controls: Contracting documents will include a clause addressing environmental considerations in the performance of the work required. Contracting and Materiel Management will ensure that environmental performance specifications are incorporated in the initial bid documentation. Additional statistics will be collected to track environmental considerations.

Training: The Service will require all existing functional specialists take CSPS Course 215 on Green Procurement by the end of fiscal year 2011‑12. New functional specialists will be required to take the course within 6 months of being hired. Training on Green Procurement will also be provided to key acquisition cardholders, key players involved with acquisitions, as well as the members of the Contract Review Committee of the Service.

Preliminary Objectives:

  • Ensure paper with at least 30% recycled content is purchased.
  • Increase use of bulk buys where appropriate to reduce packaging.
  • Ensure duplexing functionality is considered in the acquisition of printers and photocopying equipment.
  • Ensure toner cartridges purchased are, and can be, recycled.

Other Related Initiatives :

  • Reduce paper consumption through the implementation of e-filing and digital recording solutions (this initiative requires a substantial investment of resources to implement which is not currently available to the Service).
  • Reduce carbon emissions of mail deliveries through the planned move of the corporate support functions of the Service in the National Capital Region to the Federal Judicial Building at 90 Sparks Street (this initiative requires a substantial investment of resources to implement which is not currently available to the Service).
  • Reduce paper acquisition through examination of the possibility that the default setting for all printers and photocopiers be set to double-sided format.
  • Reduce carbon emissions through increased use of videoconferencing.

Performance Evaluations: All functional specialists are expected to include environmental considerations in the performance agreements.



Notes:

  • 5 Alternatively, departments and agencies bound by the Policy on Green Procurement but not the Federal Sustainable Development Act (FSDA) can follow the approach required of FSDA departments for green procurement by setting and reporting on green procurement targets as specified in the "Green Procurement Targets" section in the above table.

  1. Definition of printing unit: The Department of Finance Canada has defined a printing unit as stand-alone and networked printers and multi-function devices (copiers).
  2. Scope:  Faxes and scanners are excluded from this definition. The target will exclude certain operational areas dedicated to the federal Budget and business units. There will be some consideration for space configuration and business units.
  3. Method for determining the number of printing units: Print Audit software will be used to determine the final printer count.
  4. Method for determining the number of office employees: The number of office employees has been determined using office assignment from human resources reports.
  5. Processes: Management of printer and copier resources will be centrally managed to prevent indiscriminate purchases of printers.

  2. Definition of printing units: Network printers, local printers and multiplex units.
  3. Method used to determine the number of printing units: The Technology Directorate keeps an updated list of all units in place.
  4. Method used to determine the number of office employees: Population Affiliation Report1 from the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS).
  5. * Renewal of printers is carried out in bulk every three years. The latest renewal took place in March 2010, and the next is planned for late 2012-13. In view of the equipment life cycle, it would not be desirable or economical to establish a reduction target prior to the next renewal, so the target will be established for the RPP 2013-14.
  6. The Technology Directorate is responsible for monitoring attainment of the target.
  7. All Agency sectors are responsible for compliance with and attainment of the target.
  8. A communications strategy will have to be drawn up in order to raise Agency employees’ awareness.

Strategies / Comments

  1. Targeted GHG emissions sources include facilities and fleet.
  2. EC monitors and reports GHG emissions on 93% of owned floor space and the entire fleet inventory. The quantification of emissions for the remainder of the floor space is impracticable due to the effort involved in obtaining complete and accurate data. EC owns many small structures located in remote areas, such as National Wildlife Areas and upper air stations.
  3. Due to program growth since the baseline year, EC's emissions as of 2010-11 have increased for its facilities.
  4. EC's implementation plan to reduce GHG emissions includes: site-specific targets and actionable measures focused on specific categories (e.g. operations).

Strategies / Comments

  1. Definition of Printing Units: For this target for 2011–2012, EC will define “printing units” as network printers and multi-functional devices. In upcoming years, EC will work to include other categories such as desktop printers, scanners, fax machines and or photocopiers as departmental inventories progress and improve.
  2. EC will include all departmental employees, instead of just office employees, and will track its calculation using annual data from a departmental human resource inventory. Printing units will be tracked using departmental inventory data.
  3. EC anticipates a number of accommodation moves that will allow implementation of printer rationalization and therefore a decrease in network printer.

Paper Consumption Target

FY 2012–2013    
FY 2013–2014    

Strategies / Comments

  1. In FY 2011–2012, EC will determine a baseline year, baseline paper consumption quantities, tracking methodology, applicable scope and implementation strategies.
  2. EC has had a number of best practices in use for many years, including default duplex printing (i.e. installation of new printers are set on duplex as default) as well as printer rationalization, which contributes to less paper being consumed as less printers are employed and used. Other activities include the use of ECollab, an e-document management and collaboration tool that enables better collaboration, improved information management across the Department and offers significant improvement in how we create, store, organize, find and manage documents electronically.

Green Meetings Target


By March 31, 2012, each department will adopt a guide for greening meetings.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status  
Presence of a green meeting guide. (Optional in RPP 2011–2012) Yes – Updated in August 2007

Green Procurement Reporting For Departments and Agencies Not Bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act

Strategies / Comments

  1. Given FedDev Ontario's early stage of development, efforts are ongoing to build internal capacity across all facets of the organization. Over the coming year, FedDev Ontario plans to implement an effective approach to procurement planning through the establishment of key management processes and controls. These will ensure consistent and appropriate use of the PWGSC Green Consolidated Procurement Instruments, including paper, imaging devices, IT hardware, furniture and toner cartridges.
  2. FedDev Ontario will undertake an education campaign around green workplace behaviour, including:
    1. Appropriate power consumption behaviours.
    2. Reduction of reliance on consumables (paper.)
  3. FedDev Ontario will identify key individuals within the procurement services delivery and ensure that necessary training on green procurement is provided.
  4. FedDev Ontario will undertake a complete assessment of existing policy instruments and engage senior management on the inclusion of green procurement objectives into employee performance metrics.
  5. FedDev Ontario is an active participant in the Government of Canada Digital Office Initiative and expects to significantly reduce the reliance on paper products through this initiative. The main expected benefit of this modernized approach to recordkeeping would be the increased use of electronic records where paper would have been the norm in the past. This will be accomplished through a combination of updated policies, use of modern IT systems and user education on green recordkeeping practices.

Strategies/Comments

  1. Definition of printing units: The definition includes network printers, standalone printers and multifunctional devices attached to the departmental network.
  2. Scope: Includes all DFAIT locations within the National Capital Region.
  3. Method for determining the number of printing units: The number of printers was determined by identifying the number of active print queues on the network and tabulating the number of standalone printers acquired by manufacturer and model since 2005. The number excludes printers on the secure network.
  4. Method for determining the number of office employees: Human Resource Management System Business Intelligence Cube, which indicated 4,076 employees and 300 contractors (estimated) in the National Capital Region, for a total of 4,376 as of October 2010. Only employees within the National Capital Region were used because they represent 99% of all departmental employees in Canada.
  5. Implementation strategies:
    1. Develop, under the authority of the Chief Information Officer, a DFAIT print device policy that establishes the 8 to 1 ratio on print devices (standalones, network printers and multifunction print devices) for all departmental locations in Canada. This policy will be implemented gradually through equipment attrition, cluster replacement with single units and elimination wherever possible of standalone printers.
    2. Establish a process or procedure that will facilitate the review of the business case for each request for a new or replacement print device. It will also address the upgrade, repair and relocation of existing and new print devices. The process will map the business case for any requirement that contravenes the print device ratio policy.
    3. Promote the removal and reduction of single-user standalone print devices where the business case is not warranted or supported.

  3. Roles and Responsibilities: DG of Materiel and Asset Management Directorate (MAMD) is overseeing this target, with input and support from the Fleet Managers and Cost Centre Managers in Health Canada.
  4. Key Activities: Replacement of old vehicles, policy adherence, awareness and communications.
  5. Reporting Requirements: Annual GHG emissions will be assessed with the Federal Greenhouse Gas Tracking Protocol - A Common Standard for Federal Operations, which is provided by PWGSC. HC uses the ARI data base to monitor and manage fleet operations.
  6. Tools and Resources: Federal Greenhouse Gas Tracking Protocol - A Common Standard for Federal Operations, ARI database which manages fleet operations and an in-house MS Access data to run reports.
  7. An action plan will be developed to encourage conformity to HC's fleet standards, which includes "greening" the fleet.
  8. HC will also:
    • Provide stronger direction, guidance and a challenge function to fleet operators.
    • Utilize best practices already established from the more successful Regions/Programs.
    • Investigate practices from other Departments with similar fleet challenges.
    • Ramp up communications (Goods News, BC News, NAMMC meetings, etc.)
  9. HC will investigate the installation of after-market devices to reduce fuel consumption or track vehicle use statistics (e.g., anti-idling devices, heat recovery systems, or global positioning system devices); Review public/alternative transportation options (urban and remote); and will communicate a greater reliance on tele/video conferencing vs. travel and the use of rental vehicles, where applicable.
