Project Description


  • Bronson has assisted DFO for 20+ years for mandated departmental reporting on energy consumption and GHG emissions under the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (and previous reporting frameworks).
  • Bronson works closely with DFO stakeholders to report on 58 major facilities, an on-road fleet of 1,600+ vehicles and a Coast Guard fleet of marine vessels and helicopters.
  • DFO is on track to meet or exceed GHG emissions targets for 2025, 2030 and 2050.

“Bronson has worked closely with many Project Authorities over the past 20 years by employing raw data checking methods to enhance GHG reporting.”

Project Description

Bronson provides annual program management support to DFO in Energy Data Collection, Analysis and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting, as required by the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy.

Business Challenge

  • To assist DFO to report annual departmental energy consumption and GHG emissions.
  • To assemble and verify raw data reported from a variety of internal departmental sources.
  • To complete Greenhouse Gas Accounting and Reporting Templates for Facilities, On-Road Vehicles and for Coast Guard’s Excluded Fleet of Marine Vessels and Aircraft.
  • To report on departmental emissions sources, year-over-year trends, comparisons to baseline data, and progress toward departmental emissions targets.

Our Solution and Outcome

Bronson has worked with several Project Authorities over the past 20 years and provides critical institutional memory related to DFO’s energy and GHG reporting efforts. Bronson employs several methods of checking raw data to ensure that completed GHG Accounting and Reporting Templates accurately reflect DFO’s emissions. Further, Bronson developed a highly concise and readable accompanying final report that clearly presents results for the current year, compared to baseline and target emissions as well as an Excel tool to depict the impacts of weather on energy consumption.
