Remediation UN Guiding Principles Reporting Framework The UNGP Reporting Framework is a short series of smart questions to which any company should have answers, both to know whether it is doing business with respect for human rights, and to show others the progress it is making. The Reporting Framework is supported by two kinds of guidance: How can users access the Reporting Framework and its guidance documents?
The intent is that the Clean Fuel Standard would be a performance-based approach that would incent the use of a broad range of low carbon fuels, energy sources and technologies, such as electricity, hydrogen, and renewable fuels, including renewable natural gas.
It would establish lifecycle carbon intensity requirements separately for liquid, gaseous and solid fuels, and would go beyond transportation fuels to include those used in industry and buildings.
The approach would not differentiate between crude oil types produced in Canada or imported. The Clean Fuel Standard would complement the pan-Canadian approach to pricing carbon pollution.
Engagement and consultation Since JanuaryEnvironment and Climate Change Canada has engaged stakeholders, provinces and territories, Indigenous Peoples, industries, and non-governmental organizations to seek views on the design for the development of the Clean Fuel Standard.
Information on the various activities to date can be found below, on this webpage page. Following the December release of a regulatory framework on the Clean Fuel Standard, a multi-stakeholder consultative committee and technical working group were formed to further the regulatory design and development of the standard.
The multi-stakeholder consultative committee consists of representatives from key industry associations, academia, environmental non-governmental organizations, provincial and territorial governments and other federal departments. This committee meets periodically and provides a forum for Environment and Climate Change Canada to update all interested parties on progress and for stakeholders to provide advice and input on the draft regulations.
The technical working group consists of a small group of technical subject experts from the affected industries, non-government organizations and academia who provide technical advice and data and feedback on the regulatory design.
The work of the technical working group is reported back to the multi-stakeholder consultative committee. Engagement with National Indigenous Organizations is being undertaken in conjunction with consultations organized by the department on other climate change regulations.

One-third of all food produced in the world is lost or wasted between farm and fork.
The Food Loss and Waste Accounting and Reporting Standard enables companies, countries, cities and others to quantify and report on food loss and waste so they can develop targeted reduction strategies and realize the benefits from tackling this inefficiency.
