U.S. Army Sustainability Report 2012 was released.

WASHINGTON - The Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment released the Army Sustainability Report 2012, which describes the Army's sustainability efforts and progress during years 2010 and 2011.

This fourth Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)-based report documents the army's status, achievements, and trends associated with relevant indicators of sustainability. It covers a two-year period to better align with annual Department of Defense (DoD) Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP) reporting conducted pursuant to Executive Order (EO) 13514 (Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance).

Like the previous report, the Army Sustainability Report 2012 is oriented to the four core enterprises: materiel, readiness, human capital, and services and infrastructure. Each section addresses topics of note, reports progress against the relevant sustainability metrics, and highlights successes. The Army Sustainability Report 2012 annex contains a complete index to GRI sustainability metrics in tables with links to publicly-available Army sources.

Training, equipping, and supporting the Army's operations require land, resources, and people. By implementing sustainable principles and practices, the Army will decrease future mission constraints, increase flexibility and resilience, safeguard human health, improve Army quality of life, and enhance the natural environment. The Army Sustainability Report 2012 describes the army's efforts and progress in 2010 and 2011 to further integrate sustainability Army-wide.
