JBER is regulated by local, state, and federal agencies and must comply with environmental regulations. Compliance with these regulations supports our mission by allowing continuous operation of the installation and avoiding fines, which keeps funding directed towards mission critical items. Personnel at all levels play a role in Environmental Compliance, as described below:
Our mission is accomplished by using an Environmental Management System (EMS) in conformance with ISO 14001. Our EMS trains personnel in many of the organizations on base so they have the environmental knowledge to relay environmental concerns to the appropriate person. In addition we use multiple training classes to inform personnel on environmental issues; multi-level inspection programs to prevent incidents and ensure environmental compliance; and environmental goal setting to continually improve and prevent pollution.
