Even before the Liberals won the last Federal election, Joyce was finding ways to make government greener, right under Stephen Harper’s nose, engaging multiple stakeholders and five embassies in a successful international conference on Climate Change, Security & Defence. And before that, as BC’s provincial environment minister, she set the stage for BC’s carbon tax and climate leadership in the early 2000s. Since assuming office 2 years ago, while others have focused on national environmental policies, Joyce has focused her considerable talents and understanding on the largest employer, landlord and purchaser in Canada – the Federal government – working across bureaucratic and ministerial silos to develop a framework for achieving greater GHG reductions across operations, with strong support from Treasury Board President Hon. Scott Brison. Her work contributed to new targets of 40% reduction by 2030, and 100% clean energy supply by 2025 for Public Services and Procurement Canada managed buildings. Her collaboration across departments, and with provincial, municipal, academic and American climate leaders, informed the creation of a new Centre for Greening Government (CGG) within the Treasury Board Secretariat. Its mandate is to develop and leverage partnerships, track reductions, coordinate efforts and drive government’s low-carbon results.
