Although the National Energy Board is not bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act and is not required to develop a departmental sustainable development strategy, the National Energy Board adheres to the principles of the FSDS by implementing the Policy on Green Procurement.

Strategic Environmental Assessment

The National Energy Board will continue to ensure that its decision-making process includes consideration of FSDS goals and targets through the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) process. An SEA for policy, plan or program proposals includes an analysis of the impacts of the given proposal on the environment, including on FSDS goals and targets.

Public statements on the results of the National Energy Board’s detailed assessment will be made public when an initiative is announced. The purpose of the public statement is to demonstrate that the environmental effects, including the impacts on achieving the FSDS goals and targets, of the approved policy, plan or program have been considered during proposal development and decision making.
