Reporting on Green Procurement


Public Safety Canada is bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act and was required to develop a 2020 to 2023 Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy (DSDS). Public Safety Canada has developed its corresponding 2021-22 DSDS Report, including applicable reporting on green procurement activities. This report can be found on Public Safety Canada’s website.

Report on integrating sustainable development

Public Safety will continue to ensure that its decision-making process includes consideration of FSDS goals and targets through its strategic environmental assessment (SEA) process. A SEA for a policy, plan or program proposal includes an analysis of the impacts of the given proposal on the environment, including on relevant FSDS goals and targets.

Public statements on the results of Public Safety’s assessments are made public when an initiative has undergone a detailed SEA ( see here). The purpose of the public statement is to demonstrate that the environmental effects, including the impacts on achieving the FSDS goals and targets, of the approved policy, plan or program have been considered during proposal development and decision-making.
