Abstract : The Center for the Advancement of Sustainability Innovations (CASI) was established by the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) as a new capability in 2006 to be hosted at the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) in Champaign, IL. CASI was established with the goal of focusing the value of ERDC expertise, technologies and partnerships toward helping the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Army, and the Department of Defense (DoD) achieve more sustainable facilities and operations. CASI provides the military with capabilities that enhance national security through more effective use of limited resources and improved coordination and partnerships with host communities and stakeholders in the United States and around the globe. In all efforts, CASI teams strive to measure sustainability innovations against the Triple Bottom Line Plus, as stated in the 2004 Army Strategy for the Environment: (1) benefit to the organizational missions, (2) benefit to the communities that help support and are impacted by preparations for and the conduct of the missions, (3) benefit to the environment and (4) benefit to the economy. This 2013 work plan is the sixth plan published for CASI.
