Progress Report for the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy 2010-2013

cover of publication

As a means to improve the way the federal government plans for, and reports on, sustainable development, the first Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS) was tabled in Parliament on October 6, 2010. It is the first significant improvement to sustainable development planning and reporting since 1995, reflecting the Government's commitment to improved environmental decision-making, transparency and accountability.

This first Progress Report describes actions taken to implement the requirements under the Federal Sustainable Development Act since the tabling of the FSDS in October 2010. It focuses on progress made on setting up the systems needed to implement the FSDS and lays the foundation for future reporting by outlining how results will be measured and shared. Like the FSDS itself, progress reports are part of a long-term "Plan, Do, Check, and Improve" management approach geared at making environmental decision-making more transparent and accountable over time.
