Greening government

Government leadership is critical to achieving Canada’s goals for environmental and sustainable development. The Government of Canada will play its part by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from its federal operations by 40% by 2030.

To provide this leadership and meet its internal environmental commitments, the Centre for Greening Government was created at the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat in November 2016.

The Centre tracks and reports on the federal government’s emissions centrally, coordinates greening efforts across government, and drives results to ensure the Government of Canada meets its greenhouse gas reduction targets. The Centre aims to leverage knowledge, skills and capabilities that can be shared throughout the Government of Canada and among various communities of practice through partnerships with government and non-government organizations, including business and academia.

The Centre’s work is rooted in the following Government of Canada commitments:
