Planning integrates environmental considerations into mission operations by identifying federal, state, local, and DOD environmental requirements applicable to the installation’s activities. The following considerations are made during the planning process:
- Identify mission-supporting practices (jobs, products or services performed) and their aspects (characterteristics of the job that may potentially harm the environment) and impacts (the specific harm a job or job characteristic could have on the environment)
- Analyze and prioritize risks to the mission posed by those practices
- Develop objectives and targets (goals and metrics) to minimize risks to the mission posed by those practices.
