MNRs Carbon Footprint, An Assessment for Three Business Areas CCRN 11

Summary

Initiatives are underway to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from government operations to help mitigate the effects of climate change. Initiatives include procuring lower emission-producing products and services, implementing lower emission-producing operational and workplace practices, and improving the energy efficiency of buildings and vehicle fleets. Ontarios Action Plan on Climate Change (Government of Ontario 2007) establishes efforts to lead by example - to demonstrate to the public and to business leaders that sustainability is not only achievable, but economically desirable. In support of the plan, the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) initiated a pilot project to determine its organizational carbon footprint and support potential GHG emission reduction strategies.
