ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF THE ARMY (INSTALLATIONS LOGISTICS AND ENVIRONMENT) WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
This report discusses both the Armys progress--such as reducing Toxic Release Inventory TRI releases and Soldier accidental fatalities-and areas where operational demands called for increased Army sustainability efforts, such as the trend in hazardous waste disposal. Seven years of overseas engagements and the demands of repeated deployments have stretched and stressed the Armys institution, support structures, equipment, Soldiers, Families, and Civilians. Although much work remains, the Army continues to pursue strategies to increase sustainability-to support the mission by reducing impact on the environment and improving community relations and Soldier, Family, and Civilian well-being. The Army is a vast and complex enterprise that includes operational training and warfighting and institutional functions. In accordance with GRI, the report contains a complete index to all the recommended GRI sustainability performance metrics Tables 3-6 in the Annex. These tables have links to the publicly available Army reports that contain information related to each of the GRI recommended economic, environmental, and social responsibility performance metrics.
