The Government Sustainable Development Strategy 2015-2020 (text in French only) aims to mobilize public organizations to enable the necessary shift within society. It is based on the principle that the search for sustainable development in government activities must be integrated in order to gradually replace non-viable development modes. The strategy has been extended until 2022.

The Office has produced a Sustainable Development Action Plan 2021-2022 (PADD) (text in French only). This plan specifies the government objectives to which the Office can contribute by taking into account its responsibilities in accordance with its mission, mandate, competencies and scope of intervention.
