Question

Is the Department of the Navy going Green?

Answer

The Department of the Navy, where fiscally wise in the long-term, is endeavoring to have each Navy and Marine Corps installation become a sustainable community. We strive to incorporate environmental considerations into every acquisition, explore and develop programs which encourage local community compatible land uses; and embrace efficient buildings, renewable energy, smart meters/smart grids, alternate fueled vehicles, resource-efficient practices, and a culture that respects and promotes sustainability. The Department continues to support environmental research while we integrate technology, analysis, and decision-making tools into our installation operations. Sustainability supports our National Defense mission, our environment, and our community.
