SEMS Leadership Overview

  1. 1. USAG Fort Buchanan Sustainability and Environmental Management System (SEMS) Awareness Training – FY15 Sentinel of the Caribbean
  2. 2. Sentinel of the Caribbean What is SEMS? “SEMS is a mission enabler, designed to identify, manage, reduce, and eliminate risks to the environment and organization while advancing sustainability efforts.” Anibal Negron DPW Environmental Division Chief
  3. 3. Sentinel of the Caribbean SEMS Framework • Based on “Plan, Do, Check, Act” approach and ISO 14001 model which focus on continual improvement USAG Fort Buchanan ISO 14001 conformant since 2009!
  4. 4. Sentinel of the Caribbean USAG Fort Buchanan SEMS • Integrates goals and elements of the IMCOM Campaign Plan and the Office of Assistant Secretary of the Army Installations Energy and Environment (OASA(IEE) Strategy 2025
  5. 5. Sentinel of the Caribbean SEMS Scope • Applies to all civilian, military, contract and dependent personnel working for, or on behalf of the USAG Fort Buchanan activities, facilities, and tenant organizations.
  6. 6. Sentinel of the Caribbean The US Army Garrison Fort Buchanan is committed to protect its natural, cultural and human resources, promoting pollution prevention thru the continual improvement of environmental management technologies, implementing energy and water efficient controls and complying with all applicable laws, regulations, and Presidential Executive Orders. Fort Buchanan’s Policy Memorandum 23 (newly signed version 6 JAN 2015) Environmental Policy Establishes environmental priorities in consideration of the benefits to the sustainment of missions and operations.
  7. 7. Sentinel of the Caribbean SEMS Regulatory Drivers • AR 200-1 Chapter 1-1 b: Army EMS Framework • Executive Order 13693 (19 Mar 15): Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade: Requires continued implementation of formal Environmental Management Systems. • DoD Instruction (DoDI) 4715.17 (15 Apr 09): Environmental Management Systems: Requires EMS to be integrated into the mission and activities of DoD organizations to enhance operational mission performance. • DUSD (ESOH) Policy Memorandum (14 Jul 09): DoD EMS Metrics: EMS oversight requirements measured and reported in Annual Report to Congress. • ACSIM Policy Memorandum (12 Oct 10): Environmental Management and Assessment Requirements: Stipulates additional requirements on “appropriate facilities” and establishes timelines for implementing/ completing corrective action measures.
  8. 8. Sentinel of the Caribbean Significant Aspects Sentinel of the Caribbean • Vehicular Consumption of Gasoline & Diesel Fuel • Solid Waste Management & Recycling • Energy Consumption • Water Consumption • Pesticide/Herbicide Use • Hazardous Material and Hazardous Waste Management • Endangered Species & Ecological Management • Real Property, Construction & Demolition Management • Storage, Transfer and/or Release of POL (spills) Organizations should know which aspects are associated w/their activities and how are they controlled.
  9. 9. Sentinel of the Caribbean Objectives and Targets Objectives and targets (O & Ts) are the organization’s goals to reduce environmental impacts. • An EMS objective is an overall goal arising from the environmental policy, environmental aspects review and requirements identified by the organization. • An EMS target is a detailed measurable performance requirement related to the objective. Significant aspects are considered when setting objectives and targets
  10. 10. Sentinel of the Caribbean USAG Buchanan’s O & Ts • Reduce gasoline/diesel fuel usage by GSA fleet vehicles/light duty vehicles • Reduce 50% of generated solid waste (SW) • Reduce energy consumption through energy efficiency and reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions • Reduce water consumption and loss • Reduce usage and application of toxic pesticides and herbicides • Reduce purchase, usage, and disposal of hazardous materials (HM) • Reduce hazardous waste (HW) generation rate • Maintain endangered species populations through habitat conservation • Conduct property transactions (construction, demolition and renovation projects) that include NEPA and environmental considerations from project inception • Manage POL to minimize releases to the environment as a result of spills and/or accidents Sentinel of the Caribbean EMAPs define how O & Ts will be achieved
  11. 11. Sentinel of the Caribbean Environmental Programs • An Environmental Management Program is a program developed for achieving the organization’s objectives and targets. At Fort Buchanan, these programs are called EMAPs -- “Environmental Management Action Plans” • EMAPs include the designation of responsibility at relevant functions and levels of the organization and describe the means and time-frame by which O & Ts are to be achieved.
  12. 12. Sentinel of the Caribbean EMAP Working Groups • The Directorate of Public Works (DPW) Environmental Division is the Subject Matter Expert (SME) responsible to oversee and carry out execution of the EMAPs. • The EMAP Working Groups are comprised of Environmental Compliance Officers (ECOs) throughout USAG Fort Buchanan with technical expertise or job functions related to USAG Fort Buchanan’s significant aspects.
  13. 13. Sentinel of the Caribbean EMAP Working Groups • There are five Working Groups (WGs) tasked and utilized to implement the EMAPs. – Land Resources Conservation (POCs: Mr. Victor Rodriquez and Mr. Derrick Stepanof) – Installation Readiness (POCs: Mr. Alex Mojica and Mr. Dmitrli Cordero) – Sustainable Management (POC: Mr. Francisco Mendez) – Pollution Control (POC: Mr. Yamil Hernandez) – Environmental Risk Management (POCs: Ms. Wanda Robles and Derrick Stepanof)
