Abstract:

The Army Strategy for the Environment is designed to strengthen the Army today and into the future. It establishes the long-range vision for a sustainable Army, and the goals upon which the vision is based. This Strategy transitions the Armys compliance based environmental program to a mission-oriented approach based on the principles of sustainability. This document explains why this change is so important to the Army and how this sustainability-based Strategy improves the Army. The term sustainability may have different meanings in different contexts. For the purposes of this Strategy, 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.
