Accessible presentation prepared for deploying troops on environmental management practices.
The purpose of this work is to provide a deploying military unit—specifically the commander, the environmental officer, and soldier/sailor/airman—a toolbox of environmental training resources to plan and implement sound environmental practices. It seeks to fill a gap by suggesting common practices and offering practical guidance on environmental considerations for deploying forces.
- Synchronize and harmonize procedures, thereby facilitating interoperability (including in international operations, such as those led by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the United Nations (UN), or the European Union (EU)).
- Educate new personnel quickly and efficiently in these matters prior to deployment, and
- Standardize environmental requirements and considerations in technical procedures.
The toolbox is a companion to the Environmental Guidebook for Military Operations.
