Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy

Although CSC is not currently bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act (FSDA) and therefore is not required to develop a departmental Sustainable Development, CSC has implemented its own Sustainable Development Strategy for the 2018-20 period. CSC's SDS 2018-2020 contains 37 targets specific for each institution/complex.

As of March 31, 2020, 19 targets were achieved, 15 targets were partially achieved and will reach full implementation in the next SDS cycle, (i.e. targets that were partially met will be reintroduced in SDS 2020-23), two targets were placed on hold and one target was cancelled.
