Summary of initiatives to incorporate environmental performance considerations in procurement decision-making processes:
Green procurement and environmental considerations continue to evolve at NRC. Training objectives have been established for all Procurement Officers. A training program will also be extended to end-users holding acquisition cards to facilitate green procurement. Performance evaluations of supervisors and managers are also planned. For green procurement, NRC relies heavily on the Standing Offers that Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) has put in place and the green considerations that were built into them. NRC also now has green reporting capability in its SAP accounting system. Procurement officers have been using it regularly to capture green procurement purchase activity.
Contributions to facilitate government-wide implementation of green procurement:
NRC continues to participate on the Green Procurement Working Group for government departments in order to stay abreast of developments and to develop improved green procurement plans and initiatives.
|Green procurement objectives have been established but only for 2010-2011|
Summary of green procurement targets:
Fifteen percent of procurement staff has completed the Green procurement training in 2009-2010.
