ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP AND CULTURAL PRESERVATION


The natural environment is a key asset to the mission of Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz. Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz will implement good stewardship principles to protect Guam's environmental resources. Camp Blaz will incorporate compliance, best management practices, and consider the interests of the local community into mission execution. 

To this end, Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz will always strive to protect and preserve the land, water, air, and cultural resources within our cognizance by doing the following with transparency:
• Complying with all applicable environmental legislation, regulations and policy
• Implementing pollution prevention through source reduction and recycling
• Conserving natural resources and preserving cultural resources
• Implementing sustainability initiatives
• Minimizing risk to mission
• Conducting appropriate review of potential environmental impacts of all Federal actions

Operational readiness is the hallmark of the Marine Corps and environmental compliance is the key to sustaining and enhancing mission readiness and access to training environments.
