 At Barksdale Air Force Base, protecting the environment is one of our highest priorities and will be a major factor in decision-making. We are dedicated to continual improvement of our processes to prevent and reduce waste generation. We are committed to compliance with environmental laws and other requirements while reducing pollution at the source of generation.

The framework for setting and reviewing environmental objectives and targets includes considering significant environmental aspects and other factors most important to the base.
