Reporting on Green Procurement


This supplementary information table supports reporting on green procurement activities in accordance with the Policy on Green Procurement.


1.    Context


Although the Office of the Commissioner for Federal Judicial Affairs (FJA) is not bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act and is not required to develop a full departmental sustainable development strategy, FJA adheres to the principles of the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS) by complying with the Policy on Green Procurement.


The Policy on Green Procurement supports the Government of Canada’s effort to promote environmental stewardship. In keeping with the objectives of the policy, FJA supports sustainable development by integrating environmental performance considerations into the procurement decision‑making process through the actions described in the 2019 to 2022 FSDS “Greening Government” goal.
