availability of environmental and training resources. The Army must comply with all environmental
laws, regulations, and policies and commanders' guidance applying to installations. Considering the
environmental effects of training, operations, and logistics activities reduces environmental damage and
costs. Commanders, staffs, subordinate leaders, and soldiers must understand their individual duties and
responsibilities for environmental protection and become environmental stewards. They must also
understand the links between environmental considerations and their impact on safety, force protection,
and force health protection.
