Abstract:

The mission of the Department of Defense DoD is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and protect the security of our country. To successfully execute the DoD mission, our Military Departments must have the energy, land, air, and water resources necessary to train and operate, today and in the future, in a world where there is increasing competition for resources. Sustainability provides the framework necessary to ensure the longevity of these resources, by attending to energy, environmental, safety, and occupational health considerations. Incorporating sustainability into DoD planning and decision-making enables us to address current and emerging mission needs and consider future challenges. This annual update of the DoD Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan lays out our goals and sustainability performance expectations over the next decade, establishing the path by which DoD will enhance our ability to achieve our mission, lower life cycle costs, and advance technologies and practices that further the sustainability goals of the nation. The Department not only commits to complying with environmental and energy statutes, regulations, and Executive Orders, but to going beyond compliance where it serves our national security needs. It is DoD policy to address sustainability concepts in our acquisition and procurement processes, and in planning and managing our installations. We are committed to integrated risk management practices that protect the environment and promote sustainability while advancing our mission. For every DoD program, the Department will actively seek opportunities to continually improve its activities, and we will continue to develop and improve methodologies to ensure systematic analysis, informed decisionmaking, and appropriate budgets to address sustainability.
