On April 22, the Army will join the nation and many citizens of the world to celebrate Earth Day. The theme this year is "Invest in Our Planet." The Army has been celebrating Earth Day for more than 50 years and has been investing in our planet for even longer.
Investments in the environment - whether through conservation, compliance or restoration - provide immeasurable returns. For the Army, these investments maximize the availability of training and testing land and enable Soldiers to maintain mission readiness. Plus, our investments in energy and water security enhance sustainability and prepare installations to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Earth Day provides us a chance to showcase the many successes Army has achieved in environmental stewardship and reminds us how our work is an investment in the future of the planet.
