Request for Information for Environment and Climate Change Canada Procurements related to the TBS GHG Disclosure Standard

Solicitation number ECCC-2425-ME0001

Publication date

Closing date and time 2024/07/26 15:00 EDT

Last amendment date


    ECCC is launching this RFI to engage with and inform stakeholders of its intention to require procurement suppliers to adhere to the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat’s (TBS) Standard on the Disclosure of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and the Setting of Reduction Targets(GHG Disclosure Standard) for ECCC procurement contracts below $25 million where ECCC has financial delegation.

    The TBS Standard took effect on April 1, 2023, and applies to Government of Canada (Canada) procurement requirements with costs over $25 million, including applicable taxes. The aim of the GHG Disclosure Standard is to induce suppliers to measure and disclose their GHG emissions and adopt a science-based target to reduce GHGs in line with the Paris Agreement. As per section 3.2.1 of the GHG Disclosure Standard, organizations can participate in the Net-Zero Challenge or an equivalent initiative or standard to meet the requirement. The Net-Zero Challenge is a Government of Canada initiative that encourages businesses to develop and implement credible and effective plans to transition their facilities and operations to net-zero emissions by 2050.

    ECCC intends to apply the same requirements to procurement contracts with costs of $100,000 to $3.75 million for services, including applicable taxes, and of $25,000 to $750,000 for goods, including applicable taxes, in addition to requirements with costs above $25 million. The aim of this proposal is to encourage further emissions reductions and net-zero planning in Canada.

    The objectives of this RFI are to:
    Request detailed information and feedback from suppliers.
    Determine the capability of suppliers to satisfy a future requirement to adhere to the GHG Disclosure Standard for ECCC procurement services contracts of $100,000 to $3.75 million, including applicable taxes.
    Determine the capability of suppliers to satisfy a future requirement to adhere to the GHG Disclosure Standard for ECCC procurement goods contracts of $25,000 to $750,000, including applicable taxes.
    Allow stakeholders to comment on a potential path forward.

    Respondents are requested to provide answers to the questions in Part 3 of this RFI (see section on Questions to Suppliers).
