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.
