The Center for the Advancement of Sustainability Innovations CASI was established by the U.S. 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 U.S. 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 of mission, environment, and community. In addition, CASI focuses on cost savings, innovation, collaborative solutions, and continuous learning, all of which directly link sustainability to Army Business Transformation and the Army Campaign Plan. Of special note is the inclusive nature of that this summary of sustainability-related publications, which incorporates descriptions of work related to the theme of sustainabil-ity that was conducted under many ERDC programs as well as CASI.
