As the Army plans to create and employ the objective force, it is essential that environmental planning be front-loaded into the planning. There are ever more restrictive environmental concerns, including land use, pollution prevention and mitigation, protection of animal and plant species and waste management. If we do not plan early on to address these and other concerns the impacts on training, procurement, maintenance and waste disposal can be extremely costly. This paper looks at todays environmental regulations, practices and concerns. Then four scenarios looking at ten and twenty five years into the future are developed. The impact of the scenarios on transformation and the likelihood of each scenario are described. The final part of the paper provides recommendations to ensure the most advantageous circumstances for Army transformation occur.
