Sustainability derives from the Latin sustinere, or to hold. Sustainability means many things to many agencies: to maintain … to endure … to support … to preserve.
For the military, sustainability means that we strive to conserve and wisely use the resources we have at hand – whether they are natural or fiscal – in order to achieve the Army Triple Bottom Line of Mission, Environment and Community. Garrison Goal One is a sustainable community meeting the needs of the Soldier – today, tomorrow and forever.
What does this mean to you?
As “America’s Power Projection Platform,” Fort Bragg is vital to the United States military, and resources are vital to Fort Bragg. Our Soldiers, Families and civilians require resources such as open training lands, efficient and comfortable facilities, dependable utilities and reliable infrastructure to create an installation conducive to optimum public health, peak professional productivity and the best quality of life in the Army.
While we strive to provide these resources now, we recognize that we must use these resources responsibly in order to secure Fort Bragg as a viable military post for future generations of war fighters, a civilian support force and their Families. According to the Installation Management Command Campaign Plan, “a focus on sustainability will address present and future needs while strengthening community partnerships that improve our ability to organize, equip, train and deploy our Soldiers as a part of the joint force, making us better neighbors at home and abroad.”
We invite you to explore Sustainable Fort Bragg, learn more and join us in our efforts to preserve the future of Fort Bragg – the right way … the green way … all the way!
