Sustainability – “a sustainable Army simultaneously meets current as well as future mission requirements worldwide, safeguards human health, improves quality of life, and enhances the natural environment.”

(Army Strategy for the Environment, 2004)

Sustainability as a solution to…

  • Strategic Level – Mankind is exceeding the earth’s capacity to provide resources and absorb wastes.

  • Operational Level – We face decreasing access to natural resources and livable regions which will lead to greater potential for conflict and military deployments.

  • Tactical Level – We are facing increasing encroachment pressures on our installations that threaten our ability to provide realistic, battle-focused training for our soldiers.

Installation Sustainability environmental stewardship.”

“Sustainability connects our activities today to those of tomorrow with sound business and environmental practices. We have learned over the past decades that simply complying with environmental regulations will not ensure that we will be able to sustain our mission. We must strive to become systems thinkers if we are to benefit from the interrelationships of the triple bottom line of sustainability: mission, environment, and community.”
