Strategies / Comments

  1. Targeted GHG emissions sources: Facilities and fleet.
  2. Ongoing implementation of energy reduction measures in buildings, the Energy Services Acquisition Program to reduce energy use in PWGSC central heating and cooling plant in the NCA, anticipated changes in the PWGSC portfolio and other initiatives.
  3. Emission sources excluded: Housing units located in northern territories, such as Workplace 2.0.
  4. *Changes to Baseline: The baseline GhG emissions reported for 2005-2006 have been adjusted to reflect the sale and lease back of 7 properties to Larco Investments in 2007. Additional adjustments to the PWGSC portfolio and GhG baseline may be required in future years reporting.
  5. Key Components of PWGSC Implementation Plan: From 2011-2012 to 2020-2021, emissions reductions are primarily expected to result from energy efficiency upgrades and retrofits at departmental facilities:
    1. 9% - Office buildings
    2. 6% - Energy Services Acquisitions Program - Central Heating and Cooling Plants
    3. 2% - Capital Investment
    4. <1% - Fleet and Data Centres**
  6. **The transfer of data centre management to the newly created federal agency, Shared Services Canada, may have a significant impact on the stated contribution of the reported activities towards meeting PWGSC's GHG reduction target. If necessary, this will be reflected in future reports.
  7. Incremental Energy Reduction estimates are not linear, given known portfolio changes programmed before 2020.
  8. Tracking and Reporting: Data will be collected semi-annually to track progress against this target.

Strategies / Comments

  1. Definition of location within the department: Locations refers to the National Capital Area and five regions: Pacific Region, Western Region, Ontario Region, Quebec Region, and Atlantic Region.
  2. Number of locations: There are 6 locations for this target.
  3. Implementation plan: PWGSC's implementation plan addresses the disposal of all departmentally generated surplus electronic and electrical equipment (EEE) in a manner consistent with the Guideline for the Disposal of Federal Surplus EEE.
  4. Key components of the disposal process have been identified such as, asset classification; wiping of memory-containing assets; triage and identification of appropriate disposal methods; safe packaging and transportation of EEE; and, collection of disposal data.
  5. Throughout 2012-2013, PWGSC will evaluate common Regional components of the EEE disposal process, key activities and key activity areas in order to assure standardization and a common best practice approach to the activity.
  6. PWGSC's implementation plan identifies responsibilities, including delegated authority, for EEE disposal at all 'locations'.
  7. Tracking and reporting: PWGSC is capable of using its departmental integrated financial and materiel management system to report on quantities of key equipment types disposed of through all designated streams at all locations. PWGSC is committed to exploring ways to build a consistent capacity to track weight.
  8. Data will be collected quarterly to track progress against this target.
  9. Mechanism to evaluate plan effectiveness: PWGSC departmental disposal authorities meet regularly to ensure consistent application of the e-waste implementation plan.

Printing Unit Reduction Target


8.7 By March 31, 2013, each department will achieve an 8:1 average ratio of office employees to printing units. Departments will apply target where building occupancy levels, security considerations, and space configuration allow.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status  
Ratio of departmental office employees to printing units in fiscal year 2010-2011, where building occupancy levels, security considerations and space configuration allow. Actual Results for FY 2010-2011: 5.8:1    
Ratio of departmental office employees to printing units at the end of the given fiscal year, where building occupancy levels, security considerations and space configuration allow. FY 2011-2012 6:1  
FY 2012-2013 8:1  
FY 2013-2014    

Strategies / Comments

  1. Definition of Printing Units: As per PWGSC’s IT Asset Alignment Program's Phase II Program Ratio, networked printers, multifunctional devices, photocopiers, faxes and scanners are included. Non-networked desktop printers are not included in this ratio.
  2. Scope: The ratios include all printing units and office employees within the department. PWGSC has not excluded any printing units on the basis of building occupancy levels, security considerations or space configuration.
  3. Method used for determining number of printing units: PWGSC requires all branches / regions to physically count all printing units within the branch every six months. PWGSC also requires branches / regions to estimate the number of printing units that will be part of the branch's / region's inventory in six months and in eighteen months.
  4. Method used for determining # of office employees: PWGSC uses a combination of data obtained from HR systems and physical head counts to determine the number of office employees. Office employees include all employees (Full-Time Equivalents, Part-Time Equivalents, Students, Casuals, and those on Contract).
  5. Number of office employees subject to the target (latest available count, Nov. 2011): 14,700
  6. Tracking and Reporting: Data will be collected semi-annually to track progress against this target.

Paper Consumption Target


8.8 By March 31, 2014, each department will reduce internal paper consumption per office employee by 20%. Each department will establish a baseline between 2005-2006 and 2011-2012, and applicable scope.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status  
Number of sheets of internal office paper purchased or consumed per office employee in the baseline year selected, as per departmental scope. 6062 sheets / employee (FY 2010-2011*)  
Cumulative reduction (or increase) in paper consumption, expressed as a percentage, relative to baseline year selected. FY 2011-2012 Not reported  
FY 2012-2013 -14%  
FY 2013-2014 -20%  

Strategies / Comments

  1. Scope: PWGSC has elected to include all departmental employees and all paper purchased through the PWGSC Standing Offer for paper.
  2. Method used for determining paper consumption: The paper supplier reports through the Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) paper standing offer.
  3. Method used for determining # of office employees: PWGSC uses data obtained from HR systems to determine the number of office employees. Office employees include all employees (Indeterminate, Term, Casual, Seasonal, Student and Part-time Worker).
  4. Number of office employees as of baseline date (December 2010): 14,560
  5. Implementation strategies to reduce paper consumption: The Department has identified and will put in place paper reduction initiatives that it can implement in the short-term (e.g. duplex printing). Other initiatives that will reduce paper consumption over the longer term include a move to paperless meetings and electronic recordkeeping, desktop transformation and printing unit consolidation. Pending performance results, the department will implement additional actions to address current paper-based systems.
  6. * The baseline year was changed from 2009-2010 to 2010-2011, because more complete data was available in 2010-2011. Data for 2009-2010 under-represented actual PWGSC paper consumption and did not allow for internal view (of branch-level data) or consistency with future years reporting.
  7. Tracking and Reporting: Data will be collected quarterly to track progress against this target.

Green Meetings Target


8.9 By March 31, 2012, each department will adopt a guide for greening meetings.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status  
Presence of a green meeting guide. Yes: Adopted August 2011  

Strategies / Comments

  1. Adoption: The PWGSC Green Meetings and Events guide was approved for adoption through a departmental consultation and approval process. It is referenced in PWGSC Environmental Policy and is accessible to all employees from PWGSC's Publiservice site. A Green Meeting Champion was also nominated to advocate green meeting practices across the Department.
  2. Scope: The Guide addresses all types of meetings and is intended to be used by meeting organizers and participants to help reduce the environmental impacts of meetings hosted by PWGSC. The Guide addresses key principles of green meetings, key greening areas, roles and responsibilities, as well as tracking and reporting requirements, and provides tools and resources for meeting organizers and participants.
  3. Implementation Plan: The department has put in place an implementation plan and will integrate green meeting principles into the departmental event planning process.
  4. Tracking and Reporting: The implementation of the Guide will be monitored through the existing departmental events reporting process. PWGSC will report in future Departmental Performance Reports on PWGSC's use of the Green Meetings Guide.
  5. Data will be collected quarterly to track progress against this target.

Green Procurement Targets

8.10 As of April 1, 2011, each department will establish at least 3 SMART green procurement targets to reduce environmental impacts.


8.10.1 By March 31, 2014, the average fuel efficiency (in litres per 100 km) of all (new) light-duty vehicles purchased in the fiscal year by PWGSC wwill be 15% improved over the average fuel efficiency of light-duty vehicles purchased by PWGSC in base-year 2009-10.
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status  
Average fuel consumption rate of light-duty vehicles purchased in base year 8.6 L/100km (FY 2009-10)
Average fuel consumption rate of light-duty vehicles purchased in given year FY 2011-2012 Not reported  
FY 2012-2013 8 L/100km  
FY 2013-2014 7.3 L/100km  

Strategies / Comments

  1. PWGSC has ensured that this target meets all requirements of the SMART criteria, including specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time bound.
  2. Scope of implementation:
    • Incorporating guidance on vehicle right-sizing into the PWGSC Motor Vehicle Fleet Management Policy and incorporating environmental considerations into vehicle procurement processes and controls.
    • Replacing light-duty vehicles within the Treasury Board Secretariat Guide to Fleet Management benchmark range.
  3. Changes to the target: The target has changed to a comparison of light-duty vehicles purchased in the given year against light-duty vehicles purchased in the base year of 2009-2010 for the following reason:
    • The original comparison of vehicles purchased in the given year against the entire base-year fleet of vehicles is not a 'like-to-like' comparison and results in the target being too easily met.
  4. Changes to the performance measure: The performance measure has changed from using actual vehicle kilometres traveled data to lab tested rated fuel consumption for the following reason:
    • Using actual, driver reported, data will result in a minimum lag of 3 quarters as any new vehicles will require at least that amount of time to accumulate a sufficient amount of odometer readings to provide accurate fuel consumption figures
  5. Tracking and Reporting:
    • Data will be collected quarterly to track progress against this target. Other information collected may contribute to communications related to the achievement of this target.
    • Performance against this target will be measured based on average fuel consumption rate of new vehicle purchases.
  6. Implementation strategies: The updated PWGSC Motor Vehicle Fleet Management Policy is being developed in consultation with departmental fleet management stakeholders and, upon approval, the finalized policy will be communicated to this same audience.
  7. Opportunities for continuous improvement: Green fleet management is a constantly evolving field, the Department will work to incorporate new technologies designed to reduce environmental impact as they become available and operationally feasible.
  8. Estimated environmental benefits: Achieving a 15% reduction in the average fuel consumption of all new purchased vehicles will decrease average GHG emissions of new purchased vehicles from 3956 kgCO2e to 3362 kgCO2e.


8.10.2 As of April 1, 2011, and on an ongoing basis, 95% of IT hardware will be purchased against PWGSC consolidated procurement instruments or meet the environmental criteria contained in the PWGSC consolidated procurement instruments.

Progress against measure in the given fiscal year. FY 2011-2012 95%  
FY 2012-2013 95%  
FY 2013-2014 95%  

Strategies / Comments

  1. PWGSC has ensured that this target meets all requirements of the SMART criteria, including specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time bound.
  2. Scope: "IT hardware" includes desktops, notebooks, and monitors. "PWGSC consolidated procurement instruments" includes Standing Offers and Requests for Volume Discount (RVDs).
  3. Processes / reporting requirements: Financial database.
  4. Implementation strategies: Departmental policy mandates the use PWGSC standing offers. For select IT hardware where a consolidated procurement instrument is not available or not suitable, the Department will work to ensure that IT hardware purchases incorporate the environmental criteria included in consolidated procurement instruments.
  5. Tracking and Reporting: Data will be collected quarterly to track progress against this target.


8.10.3 By March 31, 2013, PWGSC will establish a baseline and SMART target to reduce GHG emissions from its business-related travel.

Existence of GHG target from business travel Yes (by March 31, 2013)  
Progress against measure in the given fiscal year. FY 2011-2012 N/A  
FY 2012-2013 100%  
FY 2013-2014    

Strategies / Comments

  1. Changes to the target: PWGSC is refocusing a departmental target on its procurement of travel to center on a reduction of the environmental footprint associated with its business-related travel. Air travel makes up the majority of total business travel emissions (95%).
  2. The previous target as stated in RPP 2011-2012 was to increase by 5% employee trips taken by rail over trips by all modes of transportation, where operational requirements allow. Following analysis of detailed departmental travel data, this target was found to be of limited scope, as it focused on only a small portion of total travel (in particular, where air travel could be realistically displaced by a shift to rail).
  3. By September 30, 2012, PWGSC will further analyse the relevant data and emission reduction potentials, determine a baseline and set a GHG reduction target from business travel for inclusion in RPP 2013-2014.

8.11 As of April 1, 2011, each department will establish SMART targets for training, employee performance evaluations, and management processes and controls, as they pertain to procurement decision-making.


8.11.1 Training for select employees.

Voluntary Reporting on Any Other Greening Government Operations Initiative


By March 31, 2014 complete remediation or complete risk management plans at 72% of known contaminated sites
Performance Measure RPP DPR
Target Status   
Percentage of known contaminated sites with completed remediation or completed risk management plans, as of March 2010. Actual results for FY 2009-2010: 65% 
Progress against measure in the given fiscal year. FY 2011-2012 67%  
FY 2012-2013 71.8%*  
FY 2013-2014 72%  

Strategies / Comments

  1. Scope: PWGSC is responsible for 254 known contaminated sites, as of December 2010 which represents the baseline denominator for the calculation of our target. As of November 3rd 2011, PWGSC is responsible for 308 known or suspected contaminated sites.
  2. As of March 2010, 172 active contaminated sites (listed on the Federal Contaminated Sites Inventory (FCSI) were listed with a status of either "remediation complete" (i.e., completed remediation or risk management plan implemented) or "assessed, no action required" as indicated in the FCSI effective June 2009 which represents the baseline numerator for the calculation of our target.
  3. As of November 3rd, 2011, 196 active contaminated sites (listed on the Federal Contaminated Sites Inventory (FCSI) were listed with a status of either "remediation complete" (i.e., completed remediation or risk management plan implemented) or "assessed, no action required" as indicated in the FCSI effective June 2009.
  4. *Changes to target for 2012-2013: The number of active sites has decreased by 10 between F Y2008-09 and FY2009-10 primarily due to divestiture. This change has resulted in more rapid achievement of interim targets and thus, these targets have been revised.
  5. This target is in line with previous sustainable development commitments (PWGSC SDS 2007-2009, Target 4.1.1)
