Abstract:

Many new innovative approaches to facility wide environmental management are emerging throughout the private sector. Commercial facilities have found that such activities make good business sense, with benefits that include cost savings and improved operational flexibility. Department of Defense DoD installations have also started implementing and benefiting from such approaches. Leading commercial firms that have successfully implemented integrated approaches to facility environmental management can offer DoD useful insights. This report documents a study that analyzed industry facility wide environmental management to find implementation insights for DoD and its installations. This analysis integrates information about the broader evolving environmental policy context, literature about facility environmental management implementation, and two best-in-class facility cases studies, Procter Gamble Paper Products Company Mehoopany, Pennsylvania, facility and the Walt Disney World Resort facility in Orlando, Florida.
