Environmental management in design lessons from Volvo and Hewlett-Packard for the Department of Defense /

The Defense Department, seeking methods to hold the line on environmental costs, can look to corporations in the private sector for novel approaches to environmental management. Corporations have learned that, if environmental issues are considered in the design stage, the payoffs over the life of the product or system can be large. The authors of this report concentrate on two corporations -- Volvo and Hewlett-Packard -- to identify the key factors that led to successful implementation of a design-for-environment program. The report shows, by drawing on the experience of Volvo, Hewlett-Packard, and other industry leaders, how DoD can incorporate pollution prevention into design activities of weapon systems without any loss of capability and with a potential for enormous savings.

  • "A new approach to environmental management is rapidly evolving in a number of large, successful commercial firms. The Department of Defense (DoD) has adopted environmental management policies very similar to those found in these organizations. The Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Environmental Security asked RAND to study how leading commercial firms had implemented their policies and suggest what DoD could do to improve its own implementation departmentwide. This report focuses on best commercial experience relevant to one key policy issue in defense environmental management- designing new weapon systems to have improved military capability and cost-effective environmental profiles over their lifetimes."@en
