Low-Carbon Procurement

Governments require a wide variety of goods and services to achieve their mandates, including building materials, office supplies, fuel, fleet vehicles, Information technology, transportation services, contracted road services, and waste management.  The cost of these goods and services is estimated to be over 10% of provincial GDP, making government a major player in the economy.  Given its scale and financial impact, public procurement in Manitoba is a key mechanism to support government legislative and policy requirements, including reducing our carbon footprint. 

Manitoba’s Climate and Green Plan Act states one area of focus as “reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving sustainable operations through sustainable procurement of goods and services.” The Act recognizes the role government and the MASH sector (municipalities, academic schools and health authorities) plays in reducing carbon emissions through procurement. 

This section of the website provides information on the low-carbon procurement and how we can support it.
