Goal 6: GHG Emissions and Energy

Target 6.1: GHG Emissions Reduction

The Government of Canada will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its buildings and fleets by 17% below 2005 levels by 2020.

Departmental target: 17% below 2005 by 2020

Scope and Context

Targeted GHG emissions sources include facilities and fleet. Environment Canada monitors and reports annually, on GHG emissions from its entire fleet inventory and 15 of its custodial facilities, representing 93% of its floor space. Fleet emissions have dropped 25% below 2005-06 levels, so focus has shifted to reduced facility emissions. Site-specific, SMART targets have been set, focusing on the implementation of reduction opportunities in six categories. These categories are comprised of; operational improvements, maintenance procedures, occupant engagement, life cycle management, energy performance contracting, and other best practices.
