Sustainable Development Strategy
The Office of the Public Integrity Commissioner (the Office) adheres to the principles of the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS), supporting the Government of Canada’s effort to promote environmental stewardship. The following table shows the actions to be taken by the Office in support of the Greening Government Strategy.
|FSDS contributing action(s)
|Corresponding departmental action(s)
|Contribution by each departmental action to the FSDS goal and/or target
|Starting point(s), performance indicator(s) and target(s)
|Program(s) in which the departmental actions will occur
|Actions supporting the green procurement of goods and services of the Greening Government Strategy
|The Office will use environmental criteria to reduce the environmental impact and ensure best value in government procurement decisions
|Applying green procurement to all material and supplies purchased in day-to-day operations, giving preference to materials containing recycled and post-consumer content and certified by external environmental agencies like EcoLogo and EnergyStar. This action includes purchasing chlorine free and 100% recycled paper.
|Green procurement incorporates environmental considerations into purchasing decisions and is expected to motivate suppliers to reduce the environmental impact of the goods and services they deliver, and their supply chains to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Starting point: N/A*
Performance indicator: Proportion of material supplies purchased that fall under targeted category (i.e., containing recycled materials, post-consumer content, chlorine free and eco-certified)
Target: 80% of all material and supplies purchased meet the green procurement criterion per the indicator
|Disclosure and Reprisal Management
*Note: The performance indicators were updated in 2021–22 to reflect the current situation in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Office has significantly reduced the paper purchases for printing as employees are working from home. Paper purchase is therefore no longer the main component of the strategy. Material purchases (office supplies for teleworking, books, electronic purchases, etc.) will contribute toward achieving the target.
