The Defense Department recognized Fort Hood with the Environmental Quality Award, officials announced Monday.

There were four areas in which Fort Hood excelled: the Net Zero Waste by 2020 program; its energy efficiency efforts; coordination and training within units; and outreach efforts within the on- and off-post communities.

The Cen-Tex Sustainability Partnership was one of the major community outreach programs highlighted by the award. The partnership brings Fort Hood together with Killeen, Gatesville, Harker Heights, and Copperas Cove to problem-solve together.

On Friday, these communities will renew their commitment to the organization during Earth Day festivities at Fort Hood.
