Policy Framework for Environmental Performance Agreements: chapter 4

What Design Criteria Must Environmental Performance Agreements Meet?

Environment Canada will be guided by the following principles in negotiating Environmental Performance Agreements:

To ensure that these principles are embedded in agreements, Environment Canada will require that each Environmental Performance Agreement it signs addresses the following core design criteria:

How these criteria are reflected in individual agreements will vary with the nature and objectives of the agreement. For example, Environmental Performance Agreements addressing issues that could be regulated may have stronger provisions for public reporting and verification than those dealing with matters that go beyond what can be regulated. Alternatively, performance agreements may be put in place to build capacity and therefore could have a stronger commitment to continual improvement.
