Did you know that the U.S. Dept. of Defense is the largest energy consumer on the planet and the Army is the largest one in the federal government?

The Army’s Net Zero Initiative’s goal is to reduce its total energy and water use to “net zero,” and to reduce waste in landfills to net zero too. So how do this-- and how well is it working?

Listen to this fascinating and engaging discussion with the person in charge of it: The Honorable Katherine Hammack, Assistant Secretary for Energy, Installations and Environment.

What can we learn?

  • Which strategy has already reduced water usage by 23%?
  • What about DOD budget cuts?
  • How does it affect national security and performance?
  • Opportunities for the private sector?

To put this in perspective, think about this: The U.S. Army spent $4.8 billion on energy total in 2012, and runs the equivalent of 152 small cities.
