The Environmental Core Business Area includes all functions that provide environmental services for the installation.  It includes Environmental Quality Program activities required to meet federal, state, tribal and local laws and regulations and Final Governing Standards/OEBDG for overseas installations.  

The Compliance component of the environmental program ensures that the Navy can implement its mission in an uninterrupted and cost-effective manner, while complying with all federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations.  The Compliance program addresses the full spectrum of the compliance lifecycle, from legislative and regulatory development through implementation of regulations.

Management of natural resources is critical to maintaining military readiness.  The Navy must test new equipment and train in environments it holds in public trust and prevent impacts to the environment wherever possible.  Conservation efforts ensure that these training environments are not degraded over time and that the Navy has continued access to these areas to train and maintain readiness.

Pollution Prevention
The Pollution Prevention (P2) component of the environmental program strives to prevent environmental pollution by reducing sources of pollution, eliminating use of ozone-depleting substances, purchasing environmentally preferable products, reducing the use of hazardous materials and developing safer alternatives, recycling, ensuring that Navy activities do not adversely impact the nation's air, water and land resources.
