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 emission sources include approximately 113 department-owned vehicles. This target does not apply to buildings owned by AANDC.  For the purposes of this target, AANDC is treating fuel purchased on "non-specific" fleet credit cards and consumed by vehicle types such as all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, material handling equipment, marine vessels, heavy trucks, special purpose trucks, and heavy mobile equipment as having been used by normal "on-road" (passenger/light-duty) vehicles.  The scope, calculation methods, and baseline will be optimized as feasible in the department's forthcoming updated GHG reduction implementation plan.

Goal 7: Waste and Asset Management

7.1 Target: Real Property Environmental Performance

As of April 1 2014, and pursuant to departmental Real Property Sustainability Frameworks, an industry recognized level of high environmental performance will be achieved in Government of Canada real property projects and operations.

Scope and Context
Targeted real property assets include operational buildings owned by or leased directly to AANDC. This target does not apply to real property owned by AANDC for potential future transfer to First Nations.

Target scope for existing Crown-owned buildings and new lease or lease renewal projects: Minimum building size of 500, and owned by or leased directly to AANDC for operational purposes.

Target scope for new construction, build-to-lease, and major renovation projects: All construction projects for operational buildings, and all major renovations in operational buildings.

Target scope for fit-up and refit projects: Minimum project area of 500 .

Notes:
AANDC has selected a reduced threshold of 500 for this target since it does not own any operational buildings with a total floor area over 1000 .

The only buildings with floor areas greater than 500 owned by AANDC for operational purposes are being transferred to the Government of the Northwest Territories in 2014.
