LANL News:

Los Alamos National Laboratory's Long-Term Strategy is to be the sound environmental stewards required for accomplishing our national security mission.

The strategy is to protect human and environmental health by:

  • Cleaning up or stabilizing historical releases to the environment
  • Controlling current programs to ensure an impact to the environment which is as low as reasonably achievable and
  • Creating a sustainable future through pollution prevention, waste elimination, energy and water conservation, and fostering resilient ecosystems.

The strategy looks from two linked perspectives connecting a broad-reaching vision to set long-term environmental goals with LANL's day-to-day examination of decisions to choose those actions that are most protective.

Learn more at LANL's interactive website for the Long-Term Strategy for Environment or by downloading the illustrated Strategy.

After consultation with the community, LANL implements this strategy to guide decisions over the long-term.

Using programs and software applications with protective assumptions built-in, the Lab makes proactive decisions to create a sustainable future for the environment, health, and the mission of the Laboratory.
