The Department of Defense has developed strong relationships and collaborated with Western states over many years and shares many similar goals, including promoting energy security, energy efficiency, alternative transportation technologies, and environmental stewardship. An example of this collaboration is through the Western Regional Partnership (WRP), an organization of federal, state, tribal and military partners in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah, many agencies are working collaboratively to protect natural resources and promote sustainability, homeland security, and military readiness in the West. This panel will explore how the Department of Defense is working with state agencies and private companies to ensure their missions and bases operate sustainably.
