Implementation & Operation - Groups & Services

The Defence Environmental Management System is implemented by all Defence Groups and Services.

This ensures everyone in Defence has the means to consider the environmental impacts of their activities and can develop and implement mitigation strategies to continually improve their approaches.

EE is responsible for developing and maintaining the overaching Defence Environmental Policy and the Defence Strategic Environmental Plan that set the framework for Environmental Management across the whole Defence portfolio.
