Army adopts net zero goals

The US Army has kicked off an initiative to generate as much energy as it uses. But their net zero initiative isn't only about energy - it is also about water and waste!!! 

If they think they can do it - perhaps we should too. 

"Addressing energy security and sustainability is operationally necessary, financially prudent, and essential to mission accomplishment. The goal is to manage our installations not only on a net zero energy basis, but net zero water and waste as well. We are creating a culture that recognizes the value of sustainability measured not just in terms of financial benefits, but benefits to maintaining mission capability, quality of life, relationships with local communities."
