A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability, including the issues, bills, and ordinances for or against which the institution has advocated:
The NSCC is engaged in development and review of Provincial legislation that relates to sustainability. As an example, in 2007, the provincial government established the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act (EGSPA), which reinforces the importance of integrating environmental sustainability and economic prosperity. In 2012, at the five-year milestone, a legislated public review of the Act was held. NSCC was invited to participate in this review. A group from various departments at NSCC met to establish a formal response to the Minister's Round Table on Environment and Sustainable Prosperity.
