6. Sustainability going forward

Reporting to Canadians and parliamentarians on our progress is key to ensure transparency and to show that we are achieving results. We will continue to report annually on the implementation of the DEES through FSDS and departmental results reporting.

Going forward, integrating sustainability into our decision making will support greater operational readiness and resilience for Defence. Energy and environment are strategic resources that, when managed effectively, enable the defence mission. As we confront the security challenges that will come from climate change, DND will do its part to reduce its own impacts while ensuring that the FAC are always ready to respond when called upon by Canadians. The commitments in this Strategy focus not only on past and present practices, they lay the foundation for future changes and improvements through adaptation of infrastructure and operations that will build our resilience to climate change.
