MCAS Cherry Point has implemented an Environmental Management System (EMS) as a systematic, quality approach to environmental management that focuses on continual improvement through effective planning, review, and corrective action.
Executive Order (EO) 13148, Greening the Government through Leadership in Environmental Management (22 April 2002), required that EMS be established throughout the Marine Corps by December 2005. EO 13423, Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management (26 January 2007), established that Federal agencies conduct their environmental, transportation, and energy-related activities under the law in support of their respective missions in an environmentally, economically and fiscally sound, integrated, continuously improving, efficient, and sustainable manner.
MCAS Cherry Point will sustain and enhance mission readiness through compliance with relevant environmental laws and regulations, prevention of pollution, and continual improvement of the EMS.
MCAS Cherry Point has committed to integrating compliance, pollution prevention, conservation, and cleanup into our operations and business decisions to minimize risk to the mission and impact to the environment.
MCAS Cherry Point expects all personnel including military, civilians, contractors, vendors, and tenants to operate within the EMS and to consider our land, sea, and air resources while we work.
