2014-2015 Sustainable Development Strategy

DEPARTMENTAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY

1. Overview of the Federal Government's Approach to Sustainable Development

The Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS) 2013–16 presents the Government of Canada's sustainable development activities, as required by the Federal Sustainable Development Act. In keeping with the objectives of the Act to make environmental decision making more transparent and accountable to Parliament, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) supports the implementation of the FSDS through the activities in this supplementary information table.

Although the Canadian International Trade Tribunal is not bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act and is not required to develop a departmental sustainable development strategy, the CITT adheres to the principles of the FSDS.
