PRLog (Press Release) - Feb. 14, 2013 - New Rochelle, NY—For the U.S. Army, sustainability means enhancing mission effectiveness and operational readiness. Katherine Hammack, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Army for Installations, Energy, and Environment, provides first-person insights into U.S. military efforts to promote sustainability as she goes "On the Record" in an interview in Sustainability: The Journal of Record, a publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The article is available free on the Sustainability website at liebertpub.com/sus.

The military is a major consumer of key resources including energy and water. It is also a leader in developing and implementing advanced sustainability techniques. In "The Sustainability Professional," Ms. Hammack discusses the Army's proactive sustainability goals and initiatives. These include the Net Zero Installations initiative, characterized by the goals of consuming no more energy or water than they can replace and eliminating solid waste to landfills.

The Army is pursuing a variety of sustainable energy projects designed to produce energy from renewable resources. In the interview, Ms. Hammack highlights several successful sustainability initiatives and describes what can be learned from the work being done in other countries.

“Ms. Hammack’s background is rooted in sustainability—she is a founding member of the U.S. Green Building Council in Washington, DC, among other notable accomplishments—and she is blazing a trail for sustainable initiatives in one of the most respected institutions in the world, the U.S. Department of Defense,” says Jamie Devereaux, Editor of Sustainability. “Her sustainability initiatives on army bases can be examples for college campuses and cities alike.”
