Strategies / Comments 

  1. Rational for traffic light indicator selected:  Transport Canada is on track to exceed the 17% reduction in GHG emissions.
  2. Targeted GHG emission sources include facilities and fleet. Transport Canada was unable to obtain all the required information for the 2012-13 reporting year to meet the DPR deadlines so a combination of 2011-12 and 2012-13 data was used. (Data regarding three facilities was not available so 2011-12 results were used. All data related to fleet figures are based on 2011-12 data with the exception of ferry information.)
  3. Exclusions: Guardhouses where energy consumption is minimal and that are used for security reasons, where billing includes other electrical costs that cannot be separated (three in total).
  4. Changes to the departmental GHG reduction target: No changes since 2011-12.
  5. Key components of the departmental implementation plan:
    • annual reporting;
    • maintenance and renovation planning;
    • working with building landlords;
    • innovative technology strategies;
    • awareness and promotional programs aimed at employees;
    • continuous fleet management; and
    • leadership vehicles.
  6. Green power purchases: Ontario Region (Sudbury Transport Canada Centre) is currently the only facility to purchase renewable green power in the department.
  7. Base year adjustments: As a result of two exclusions (security and custodian exclusions) imposed on the department’s airport hangar facilities, the original 2005-06 baseline figures were changed to represent only those facilities and buildings that fell within the reporting requirements. As such, the 2005-06 baseline changed from 64.26 kilotonnes of CO2 to 62.99 kilotonnes.

  1. Rational for selected traffic light indicator: In the given fiscal year, department has completed the following:
    • Developed and put into action a comprehensive implementation plan for achieving and maintaining an 8:1 average ratio of office employees to printing units;
    • Achieved or exceeded target; and
    • Efforts to quantify and report on reduced environmental impacts associated with the achievement of the target are highlighted in the implementation plans.
  2. Definition: Multifunctional devices, desktop printers, network printers, photocopiers and faxes.
  3. Scope: The department determined the possibility of meeting the 8:1 ratio at Transport Canada buildings across the nation, based on building occupancy levels, security considerations and space configurations. While some buildings may have a smaller ratio due to the above-mentioned considerations, on average, the department will meet this target for all employees (100 per cent).
  4. Method used for determining number of printing units: Information Management / Information Technology (Corporate Services) is leading a departmental initiative to inventory (via electronic and manual means) all printing units.
  5. Method used for determining number of office employees: Number of Transport Canada unique user identifications as validated against Human Resources (HR) statistics (5,495 employees).

  1. Rational for selected traffic light indicator: In the given year, the department:
    • Developed and put into action a comprehensive implementation plan for achieving and maintaining an 8:1 average ratio of office employees to printing units;*
    • Achieved or exceeded target; and
    • Efforts to quantify and report on reduced environmental impacts associated with the achievement of the target are highlighted in the Paper Consumption implementation plan.
  2. Scope: Our department has elected to include all departmental employees, instead of just office employees.
  3. Method used for determining paper consumption: Information available within the department.
  4. Justification for change in methodology from 2011-12 DPR: Further analysis and better data availability prompted the modification of the methodology. As a result, the 2011-12 DPR result decreased from 55% to a 45% reduction. Note: One region was unable to provide 2012-13 data so 2011-12 figures were used instead.  The reporting issue has been addressed and should not impact 2013-14 final results.
  5. Method used for determining the number of office employees: Number of Transport Canada unique user identifications as validated against HR statistics.
  6. Number of office employees subject to the target: 5,495.
