Green Procurement

Meeting Policy Requirements

Has the department incorporated environmental performance considerations in its procurement decision-making processes?

In progress

Summary of initiatives to incorporate environmental performance considerations in procurement decision-making processes:

  • Completing the review and publishing training documents to ensure that contracting officers are familiarized with the Green Procurement Policy and the Acquisition Card Policy.
  • Updating plans with clients to evaluate needs, and to reduce the number of individual contracts.
  • Reinforcing the purchase or rental of recycled and reused material when acquiring goods and services.

Results achieved:

  • The School strives to encourage the use of the Acquisition Cards for low dollar value purchases.
  • ontracting Officers are now monitoring the use of standing offers to reduce the number of contracts.
  • The School continues to lease energy efficient multi-functioning machines that print, scan, fax and photocopy documents. Employees continue to scan their documents in order to reduce the paper usage.
  • The School purchasing recycled paper and ink cartridges and reusing office furniture instead of buying new, is now standard practice.
  • Printers have been customized to automatically print double-sided pages, in order to reduce paper waste.
  • The School continued to replace all CRT monitors with more efficient flat screens.

Contributions to facilitate government-wide implementation of green procurement:

  • On-going training to public service employees by way of an on-line green procurement course which is proactively promoted.

Green Procurement Targets

Has the department established green procurement targets?

In progress

Summary of green procurement targets:


Results achieved:

The School is progressing towards establishing specific targets. However, we believe that the above-mentioned actions have already resulted in a reduction of paper waste as well as other efficiencies and on-going promotion of green procurement.
