organizations, and platforms. Shore command personnel must be aware of and comply with the
additional environmental requirements imposed by State and local governments, as appropriate.

4. Discussion. The mission of the Navy's Environmental Readiness Program is to ensure the
Navy conducts its mission in an environmentally responsible manner and has continued access to
land, air, and sea. Navy joint and combined training and testing must be planned and executed to
fully meet both operational readiness requirements and the Navy's environmental objectives.
National defense and environmental protection are, and will continue to be, compatible goals.
Achievement of these goals requires the leadership and personal commitment of all military and
civilian personnel throughout the Navy chain of command.
