Advancing Sustainable Procurement in the Public Sector

What's New?

Sustainable Procurement has a New legislative Home in our Province

This is an exciting time for Sustainable Development in our province.  As of November 8, 2018, The Climate and Green Plan Act is in effect. As a result of this new legislation, The Sustainable Development Act and The Climate Change and Emissions Reductions Act have been repealed.  But don’t worry, the new Act continues to promote sustainable procurement.

Let's get electric - Providing electric vehicle charging stations

As more electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles become available and as society transitions to these vehicles, municipalities and businesses look to increase electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure for employees, customers and citizens in general. There are numerous EV charging station options with a variety of features in the marketplace… wondering where to start?

Check out the Electric Vehicle Charging Station page under the Goods and Services section of the SPM website! This page provides guidance on selecting charging equipment, the available features, as well as supporting accessibility.

Procurement and your organization’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory

More and more municipalities, cities and businesses are measuring and reporting their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on an annual basis.  Compiling these annual emissions is often the role of a Sustainable Development professional or Greenhouse Gas Accountant/specialist.
