Scorecard: Progress toward our targets

The 2016-2019 Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (the Strategy) presents 13 aspirational goals supported by measurable targets and clear actions. These are all aimed at realizing the vision that Canada is one of the greenest countries in the world and where its quality of life continues to improve.

This scorecard shows how after 2 years the Government of Canada is progressing in implementing the Strategy. It shows where the Government of Canada is achieving its targets and where more work is needed. In keeping with a commitment to continually improve, these progress results will be used to inform the development of the next Federal Sustainable Development Strategy.
