Greening Government

As the buyer and property manager for the Government of Canada, PWGSC plays a leading role in sustainable development, and we are committed to ensuring a cleaner environment for all Canadians.

To help meet that goal, we purchase green products wherever possible, such as gas/electric hybrid vehicles. And starting this year, all new government buildings will be designed and constructed to use less electricity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These measures not only help the environment, they save money too.
