The Army Sustainable Installation program is designed to assist installations to take a pro-active approach to plan for long-term mission viability and integrity while at the same time minimize the consumption of resources and reduce the impact on the surrounding communities and environment. A key feature in this program is to assess the current and future needs of an installation for land for training, and assess reliable, secure, and low-cost energy and water. A Sustainable Installation plan is then developed to minimize or reduce the total use of resources, ensure mission readiness, and improve the quality of life for soldiers while protecting the local communities and environment.
To date Sustainable Installation planning has been undertaken at Fort Lewis, Fort Carson, Fort Bragg, Fort Hood, Fort Campbell, Fort Polk, Fort Rucker, Fort Benning, Fort Knox, Fort Stewart/HAAF, Fort Jackson, Fort Eustis, Fort AP Hill, USAG Hawaii, USAG Wiesbaden, and PA ANG.
