Assignment

Golder was mandated by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and Environment Canada (EC), to develop their own sustainability evaluation tool in order to encourage the Ministries and the Governmental Agencies to take into account the environmental, social and economic dimensions of their remedial project planning.

Our Role

The PWGSC/EC Sustainable Decision Support Tool (SDST) offers a framework to perform a "triple-bottom-line" assessment by focussing on economic, environmental and social considerations. The SDST offers an executable framework to support pragmatic decision making while taking into account these issues. The phase II of the Development and Testing of a Sustainability Decision Support Tool in Site Remediation for the Government of Canada is presently ongoing.
