MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, I explore the role of the military in relation to environmental sustainability, internationally and in Canada. The Department of National Defence (DND) and Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) are analyzed in regards to their motives and goals as well as the Canadian laws they abide by in order to ensure environmental protection and sustainable development as well as their intent to minimize their ecological footprint. Particular attention is given to the roles of the Office of the Auditor General and Commissioner for the Environment and Sustainable Development in overseeing the environmental performance of the Canadian military. The roles of departmental Sustainable Development Strategies (SDS) and the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS) are also examined.
