Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy

1. Context for the Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy

The 2016–2019 Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS):

  • sets out the Government of Canada’s sustainable development priorities
  • establishes goals and targets
  • identifies actions to achieve them, as required by the Federal Sustainable Development Act

In keeping with the objectives of the Act to make environmental decision-making more transparent and accountable to Parliament, Shared Services Canada supports reporting on the implementation of the FSDS and its Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy, or equivalent document, through the activities described in this supplementary information table.

4. Report on integrating sustainable development

During the 2017–18 reporting cycle, Shared Services Canada considered the environmental effects of one proposal subject to the Cabinet Directive on the Environmental Assessment of Policy, Plan and Program Proposals, as part of its decision-making processes. Through the Strategic Environmental Assessment process, this departmental proposal was found to have a positive effect on progress toward achieving the 2016 to 2019 FSDS goals and targets. To build on this progress, SSC will also continue to ensure that enterprise data centres obtain LEED Silver certification for Building Design and Construction (2009).
