ENVIRONMENTAL PUBLIC AFFAIRS
|Publication Date:||14 July 2015|
The Air Force develops and executes public engagement programs to build sustained public understanding, trust and support for Air Force people and missions. An active public affairs program is a cornerstone of the Air Force's environmental program and supports the intent of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The focus of PA activities is to inform and involve audiences during critical decision-making windows in various Air Force Environment, Safety, and Occupational Health (ESOH) programs. The objective of the ESOH program is to develop and implement innovative, integrated, and comprehensive solutions that enhance the Air Force's ability to project air, space, and cyberspace power globally. The primary Air Force ESOH priorities are to comply with all ESOH legal obligations, reduce risk by ensuring availability of workforce, natural and manmade resources by effectively managing ESOH risks, and continuously improving by instilling a culture of continuous ESOH improvement. This AFI establishes responsibilities, guidance, and procedures for organizing and administering an effective Air Force Environmental PA program.
