In 1998 Manitoba passed the Sustainable Development Act. The legislation sets out sustainable development principles and guidelines for Manitoba.
The Act recognizes that the public sector, through its internal operations and procurement practices, has an integral role in promoting environmental awareness and Sustainable Development. Government departments and publicly funded agencies will be required to apply Sustainable Development principles in their operations.
The procurement practices of the Department of Finance will adhere to the Act and to the principles of green procurement as these are developed.
Information on Green Procurement is also available.
Additional information of interest to employees and suppliers will be available here in the future.
