A brief description of how green cleaning is incorporated into cleaning contracts:

Sustainability, waste diversion and Green Cleaning requirements were incorporated into the RFP evaluation process during the vendor selection for a new cleaning contractor in 2019. The selected vendor had the highest score in terms of these sustainability measures.


Of the institution's uncertified building space, what percentage of floor area is maintained in accordance with an energy management or benchmarking program? (0-100):
100

A brief description of the energy management or benchmarking program:

The Metrics and Targets established in the 2013-2018 Sustainability Plan regarding energy are as follows:
- Reduce total annual energy consumption per square foot by 15% across all campuses

Since, 2013 Fleming's Physical Resources Department and Office of Sustainability has tracked both electricity - submetering (all campuses and all meters (Hydro `One, PUS), gas (Enbridge), propane (Sparlings) and using an internal excel spreadsheet with fields populated for monthly consumption, by fiscal year (April 1 - March 31) for all meters and calculated to total annual consumption. The categories are as follows: electricity (`kwh); propane (ekwh); Shell gas (ekwh); natural gas (ekwh) and water. This is tracked against the 15% energy reduction target in the multi-year sustainability plan. The analytical spreadsheet tool contains a dashboard indicating if we are "Below Target", "Above Last Year" or "Above Target". This (15%) target is also found in Fleming's five year Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan (2014) publicly available here https://flemingcollege.ca/PDF/Energy-Conservation-and%20Demand-Management-Plan-2014.pdf.
Finally, as a public sector organization, Fleming must file annual energy reports under Ontario Regulation 397/11. These reports are also found on our Office of Sustainability website https://flemingcollege.ca/sustainability/resources-and-reports

All totals by campus are input into an annual tracking for GHG totals in the College GHG tool. The consumption tracking and GHG tool displays charts with year to year totals and comparisons for all operational targets.

A brief description of the water management or benchmarking program:

The Metrics and Targets established in the 2013-2018 Sustainability Plan regarding water are as follows:
- Reduce total annual potable water consumption per square foot by 10% across all campuses
Since, 2013 Fleming's Physical Resources Department and Office of Sustainability has tracked both electricity - submetering (all campuses and all meters (Hydro `One, PUS), gas (Enbridge), propane (Sparlings) and using an internal excel spreadsheet with fields populated for monthly consumption, by fiscal year (April 1 - March 31) for all meters and calculated to total annual consumption. The categories are as follows: electricity (`kwh); propane (ekwh); Shell gas (ekwh); natural gas (ekwh) and water (M3). This is tracked against 10% potable water reduction targets in the multi-year sustainability plan. The analytical spreadsheet tool contains a dashboard indicating if we are "Below Target", "Above Last Year" or "Above Target". Annual reports are found on the Fleming Office of Sustainability https://flemingcollege.ca/sustainability/resources-and-reports.
