Abstract The mission of the Department of Defense (DoD) is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and protect the security of our country. To successfully execute the DoD mission, our Military Departments must h ave the energy, land, air, and water resources necessary to train and operate, today and in the future, in a world where there is increasing competition for resources. Sustainability provides the framework necessary to ensure the longevity of these resources by addressing energy, environmental, safety, and occupational health considerations. Incorporating sustainability into DoD planning and decision-making enables us to address current and emerging mission needs and consider future challenges. This annual update of the DoD Strategic Sustainability Performance Plan (SSPP) lays out our goals and sustainability performance expectations through FY 2020, establishing the path by which DoD will improve our mission, lower life-cycle costs, and advance technologies and practices that further the sustainability goals of the Nation. ln FY 2011, the Department continued to drive progress on sustainability by integrating it into the everyday course of DoD business. We did this by embedding sustainability concepts and requirements into our high-level strategies, policies, and guidance documents across the Military Departments. We are committed to integrated risk management practices that advance our mission while protecting the environment and promoting sustainability. The Department is addressing sustainability concepts in our acquisition and procurement processes, as well as in the planning and management of our installations. For every DoD program, the Department actively seeks opportunities to continually improve its full range of operations through improved analysis, informed decision-making, and appropriate budgets to address sustainability.
