Sustainable Military Installations

Mark N. Goltz and Nadja F. Turek

Abstract

Military installations and university campuses are, perhaps surprisingly, quite similar. The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has a number of programs focused on sustainable operations at its installations. In this chapter, we describe these programs and present some case studies that demonstrate implementation of sustainable practices within the DoD. Many of these programs and practices are universally applicable, with relevance to academic institutions.
