Green Procurement

How is your department planning to meet the objectives of the Policy on Green Procurement?

The Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying (OCL) is a small organization compared with most federal government departments and agencies. It is not an asset intensive organization. Most of its assets consist of computer and office equipment, furniture and stationery supplies.

Even though it has not established green procurement targets, the OCL is contributing to the protection of the environment by using green procurement standing offers whenever possible, buying high-content recycled paper, and recycling spent batteries as well as empty toner cartridges used in office printers.  Other initiatives include printing the OCL's annual report and investigation reports on 100% recycled paper, double-sided printing of documents whenever possible, circulating documents of interest and/or making them available on a shared computer drive rather than printing multiple copies for internal distribution, and using the OCL's web site as the preferred means for public distribution of information and corporate publications.
