Mission

     MCAS Miramar's Environmental Management System (EMS) mission is to improve our environmental performance by specifying repeatable steps that our organization consciously implements to achieve our environmental goals and objectives, and to create an organizational culture that reflexively engages in a continuous cycle of self evaluation, correction and improvement of operations and processes through heightened employee awareness and management leadership and commitment.

     Miramar's EMS is expressed through this website, with each EMS component and its associated elements "living" on a webpage. This website provides tools for the operation of Miramar's EMS, and is designed to maximize the effectiveness of communication among environmental program media managers, stakeholders and those persons or organizations interested in MCAS Miramar's environmental affairs.
