2018-19 Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy
1. Context for the Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy
Although the Office of the Privacy Commissioner is not bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act and is not required to develop a full departmental sustainable development strategy, the OPC adheres to the principles of the FSDS by implementing the Policy on Green Procurement.
The Policy on Green Procurement supports the Government of Canada’s effort to promote environmental stewardship. In keeping with the objectives of the policy, the OPC supports sustainable development by integrating environmental performance considerations into the procurement decision making process through the actions described in the “FSDS goal: low-carbon government” table in section 2, below.
2. Commitments for the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada
|FSDS target||FSDS contributing action||Corresponding departmental action(s)||Starting points where available and performance indicators for departmental actions||Programs where the departmental actions will occur|
|Reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from federal government buildings and fleets by 40% below 2005 levels by 2030, with an aspiration to achieve it by 2025.||Support the transition to a low carbon economy through green procurement.||
3. Integrating sustainable development
The OPC will continue to ensure that its decision-making process includes consideration of FSDS goals and targets.
