FOUNDATION

The Army's environmental strategy model, is founded on the bedrock of shared national values that fortify the Army and the nation. The key building blocks—people, resources, communication, management, and organization—provide the foundation for all Army activities, including environmental stewardship. Army leadership, coupled with the building blocks, provides a sound footing for the four pillars of compliance, restoration, prevention, and conservation. These pillars represent parts of the environment that must work together. The environmental model shows how these four pillars support environmental stewardship. Environmental stewardship, in turn, supports the Army mission.
