Fort Benning Sustainability

The Army Strategy for the Environment

Sustainability Picture

Sustainability: "Sustainability" and "sustainable" mean to create and maintain conditions, under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic, and other requirements of present and future generations (this report). The DOD vision of sustainability is to maintain the ability to operate into the future without decline—either in the mission or in the natural and man-made systems that support it (DOD 2014 Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan, June 2014).
